Changes in Power of Attorney Forms for New York State

Blumberg announces an important update to their New York State Power of Attorney Forms. This update complies with amendments to the Power of Attorney Statute that takes effect June 13, 2021. For over 100 years courts have relied on Blumberg Powers of Attorney forms. The distinctive boilerplate and usage in countless transactions have become the trusted choice of attorneys and the financial, real estate, business, and healthcare communities.

The changes to the existing law are meant to simplify a very complex area of law. They will make it easier for everyone involved in a transaction that includes a power of attorney to comply with the law.
These changes will make it easier for individuals to appoint an attorney, for the attorney to act upon the power and for the recipient to rely on the validity of the power of attorney. However, it will also require a knowledgeable professional to adhere to the basic requirements. It also requires that great care be taken to ensure that the form’s execution is made properly and with the principal’s knowledge and consent.
