Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Just to be clear, you have no legal duty to act, even with a POA, as this is an entirely voluntary position. This isn't like a legal guardianship where you are appointed by the court so you have to formally be removed from the position.
So there is no real "resignation", you would just send a letter to the grantor of the POA stating that you do not wish to be the POA any longer and will not undertake any actions using the POA authority.
But you can just stop doing whatever you are doing and have no legal liability to continue on exercising any POA powers if you don't want to do it any longer.
