We absolutely prefer that everyone attend closing, and are very flexible in scheduling in order to allow all parties to be present. Nevertheless, we know there are situations in which it is simply impossible for someone to attend. In those cases, we will make arrangements for your clients to sign the closing documents remotely or through the use of a power of attorney.
Remember: powers of attorney are documents of last resort and really should be used when someone truly is incapable of coming to the closing.
Every power of attorney must be specific to the particular transaction and must be approved by the lender, if any, in advance. If you suspect that a power of attorney will be required, please let us know as soon as possible.
