What is the California Special Durable Power of Attorney for the Purchase of Property?

This document creates a durable, special power of attorney for the PURCHASE of California real property. A power of attorney is a legal document delegating authority from one person to another. In the document, the maker of the power of attorney (the "principal") grants the right to act on the maker's behalf as that person's Attorney-in-fact.

Attorney-in-fact means a person granted authority to act for the principal in a power of attorney, regardless of whether the person is known as an attorney-in-fact or agent, or by some other term. CA Prob Code 4014(a)

This special power of attorney grants the attorney-in fact the power to execute and deliver on the principles behalf, name and stead, any in all necessary legal documents including contracts for sale, deeds, mortgages, deeds of trusts, promissory notes, settlement statements, affidavits, and other documents with regard to all matters concerning the PURCHASE of a specific property. It includes a "special instructions" section which can be used to further limit/define the powers given.

This instrument is to be construed and interpreted as a durable power of attorney that takes effect immediately and (this power of attorney shall not be affected by the principal's subsequent incapacity.) CA Prob Code 4124(a)

This Special Power of Attorney is specifically limited to the acts specified within and terminates upon a time frame set by number of days after its execution. For example: Terminates 60 days after execution.

Included are the warning statements required when a power of attorney (is sold or otherwise distributed in this state for use by a person who does not have the advice of legal counsel)
(Notice to Person Executing Durable Power of Attorney)
(Notice to Person Accepting the Appointment as Attorney-in-Fact) CA Prob Code 4128 (b)

Name: Connie C.

Review: I thought the process was fairly easy. The price was reasonable. I had a slight problem, some of the words were missing from one page of the documents when I printed it. However, after I saved it to my computer, I was able to print the page in full.

Name: Pamela B.

Review: The process was not difficult but I don't think that it suited my needs. There were several fields that were not applicable to me but I had to enter something to proceed. I also filled out the other form and mailed it in with some documentation that the electronic service did not ask for. Questions of my attempt are still unanswered. I hope I didn't waste time with this process. We shall see. Thank you.

Review: I was on several sites but this was the easiest and cost effective. No bait and switch like on several sites where you get a "free trial" and then they started billing you monthly for legal services. Excellent.
