You do not need a durable, you should use a limited so that when the house sells he no longer has the right to act in your place for financial matters

A listing contract does not require a POA, the Realtor can email or overnight the listing agreement directly to you and or your son. The deed and a few other documents at closing are what require the POA and it needs to be a specific one for selling the home. I suppose a general one would also work but my title expert prefers a specific version. I would wait until the buyer chooses a lender then have the title company being used by the lender prepare the POA and send it to you to have notarized. They are the ones that must certify title for the lender so if they prepare it for you they can’t reject it because of the content. Hope this helps,

You will need to sign a note in the presence of a Notary Public, giving permission for your son (named) to sign the necessary documents to effect the sale of real estate (address, legal description). Contact me at peter.knight@remax.net and I'll point you to a form.

Btw if your son needs a Realtor, depending on the location, I would like to apply for the interviewing process.

If you have an attorney I would call him. If you do not I would recommend Scott Treadway, go to ESTLAWLLC.com.

He is a great real estate attorney.
