A person with a power of attorney that expressly authorizes transfers of real estate can make the transfer without the property owner's request. However, while the county clerk won't contest the transfer if it is made to the person with the power of attorney, other potential beneficiaries of the property could sue the person making the transfer for "self dealing." Consequently, any transfer should generally be made to a third party with no familial or other close connection to the person with the power of attorney.
