New York Preprinted Power of Attorney Forms

More and more preprinted do-it-yourself New York power of attorney forms are everywhere. Are they cheap? Yes. Do they work? Sometimes. Are they a good idea? No.

If you are like most people, your individual needs likely require you to customize your New York power of attorney form to some extent, and therefore preprinted New York power of attorney form won’t be quite right for you.

Chances are you want to be able to customize your power of attorney form to meet your goals and objectives. Not only will a preprinted New York power of attorney form not fit your particular wishes, but additionally as soon as you attempt to edit a preprinted power of attorney form you are exposing yourself to the possibility of facing all kinds of problems.

 

First, when you attempt to edit a preprinted New York power of attorney, you need to be certain that your changes still satisfy New York’s legal requirements for a valid power of attorney. Otherwise, you run the risk of your new power of attorney being invalid under New York's law. I think we can all agree, that if you are going to put the energy into making your own power of attorney, you certainly want the finished result to be valid and legally binding.

Second, when you attempt to edit a preprinted New York power of attorney form, you are forced to follow the layout of the preprinted POA. As most would agree, when you are doing something important for the first time you are much better off working from a clean slate. This is especially true when it comes to preparing a power of attorney. With a clean blank POA document to work with, you can create and specify what to include or not in the power of attorney.

Third, a preprinted power of attorney can make future edits to your power of attorney very difficult. Often people purchase a preprinted power of attorney, fill it out, sign it, and then later want to make changes to the power of attorney and find it impossible to do so.
