So it is as simple as downloading one of the forms I can find in the web and signing it? Do I need a notary to validate it?
Yes, it must be notarized. All you need to do is use the form provided by the New York State Bar Association. You can download a power of attorney form herehttp://www.nysba.org/AM/Template.cfm?Section=Home&CONTENTID=41935&TEMPLATE=/CM/HTMLDisplay.cfmJust check off the real estate transactions box. Sign it, notarize it, and send it. If you have further questions, please feel free to continue. If not, please do remember to leave a positive rating for my assistance today.Thanks!Nate
