A Power of Attorney lasts forever or until the death of the person giving the POA unless the POA has a specific duration set forth in the document (for example "this POA ends on January 1, 2018"). Also, a POA does NOT pass to the next of kin or to anyone else unless there is a specific alternate named in the Power of Attorney. Only the person or persons specifically named in the POA have the rights granted by the POA.

It is not required that a Power of Attorney paperwork be filed anywhere. Normally the person who will use the POA keeps the original signed document and then if someone needs a copy (for instance a bank may want a copy of a POA to allow them to make deposits or withdrawls) they are shown the original and then make a copy of the original for their files.

If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a 5 Star Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work. Of course, please feel free to ask any follow-up questions in this thread. I want to be sure all of your questions are answered.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
