Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

Does the POA allow you in its terms to sell her assets, such as the car?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I suppose I should read it again. This is happened so quickly I haven't read it in 4 years
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
It is durable power of attorney
Expert:  Loren replied 8 months ago.

If the POA allows, you are free to sell the car in her name and any other assets you need to convey to act in her best interests.
