Hello, My mother owns...

Hello, My mother owns property in California that she wants to put under a power of attorney for management purposes, but she lives in Georgia and has no plans to come out to California any time soon. Can she get a Georgia power of attorney that applies to California property? If not can she get a Georgia state notary to notarize a California power of attorney?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is your mother in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Georgia

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps has your mother taken so far?

She has purchased the property and in now ready to sign a power of attorney to manage it.

Good afternoon. She can prepare, sign, and have the POA notarized in Georgia. It will be enforceable in CA. Under the U.S. full faith and credit laws, each state will honor and accept documents and contracts of another state. So, there is no need for your mother to travel to CA; she can do all this in Georgia and it will be effective to give the person given the POA the authority to act on her behalf.

Thank you so much for allowing me to help you with your question. I have done my best to provide information which fully addresses your question. If you have any follow up questions, please ask! If I have fully answered your question(s) to your satisfaction, I would appreciate you rating my service as Good or Excellent (i.e., 4 or 5 stars)(hopefully Excellent/5 stars!). Otherwise, I receive no credit for assisting you today. I thank you in advance for taking the time to provide me a positive rating!

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.
