Real Estate Power of Attorney
It used to be that all of our closings involved happy buyers and sellers gathering around the table at the title company, exchanging small talk, neighborhood news and house keys while signing all of the documents needed to execute the sale.
Today, it seems that many of the sellers have already moved on and are living out of town, if not out of state. While they may be willing to travel for the Act of Sale, there are so many delays that can (and do) happen with closing dates that we often are left looking for an alternative.
Enter the Real Estate Power of Attorney.
What is a Power of Attorney? Also called a POA, a Power of Attorney is nothing more than a legal document allowing one person to act in a legal matter on another’s behalf regarding financial or real estate transactions. The POA can be given to a family member, a friend or another trusted person in order to keep a sale on track when the seller(s) cannot physically attend the closing.
Even though someone else may be signing on your behalf, the title company will still provide you with a copy of all of the documents ahead of time in order for you to review them for inaccuracies or necessary changes and we make it a point to personally represent our sellers at every closing, whether they are there or not.
