Ask an attorney but, don't EVER be the POA for a client - EVER!

Let someone else take on that responsiblity.

That the person providing the power of attorney was not of sound mind when they signed the authorization. This is a way the elderly can be manipulated by people who have their own selfish interests as a priority and not the interests of the senior owner of the property. Truly elder abuse.

many of our sellers give a power of attorney to their attorney... in 39 years, there's never been an issue.... none of the agents in my office will take on that task of being power of attorney for a client.... that's what attorneys are for!!!

You need to ask an attorney that question as they are legal instruments. But if executed properly, there should be no issues.
