Can someone holding a Power of Attorney execute a Quitclaim

Posted on: 01st Feb, 2007 09:50 pm
A brother was granted Power of Attorney. The Grantor is ill, and the brother wants the property transferred to someone else. Does the Grantor have to sign the quitclaim form or can the Power of Attorney sufice?
hi crweir,

welcome to the forums.

if the grantor is unable to sign a quit claim deed, then the power of attorney can suffice. but the person having power of attorney should transfer property in agreement with the grantor. otherwise, there can be legal problems in future.

the brother who has been granted the power of attorney can only sign the quit claim deed provided the document for the power of attorney states that he has the legal right to transfer or gift property.

thanks,

sara

It will depend upon the authorization grantor has given in the power of attorney. If such authority has been granted to the brother then he will be able to transfer the property. And the grantor will not be required to sign any quit claim form.
