Hello. My name is***** am an attorney. I will review your question. I may need to clarify facts first. I will answer & we can discuss issues.
When reading your question, at first I thought, the escrow agent is not allowing it because he is not a CA attorney. Then I thought, well, he can become the attorney in fact and have a power of attorney. Then I finished your question and saw he has the power of attorney. So, I am perplexed myself. What is the reason that the escrow company is giving? Possibly because it is not a California Power of attorney form? Or neither of you are in California. Let's discuss.
Yes. This happens frequently. If your son is an attorney, possibly he could contact an attorney in California to work on this matter for you. Many time banks or escrow agents are afraid to accept accept PofA's because they are fearful of the consequences. An attorney in California, can give comfort. The only other option is to seek court intervention. We can continue to discuss this if you want to do so.
