You can bet I won’t forget this one in the future. I have LeGrands info and I have Bronchick’s info. I do not recall seeing anything about a limited power of attorney (not to say it isn’t there).
I do have documentation assigning the escrow to me, but I do not have the power of attorney. Worst case, the bank sends the check to the seller and they keep it (I learn a $2,000 lesson). Better case, the bank sends the check to me in the sellers name and I at least have some control over the situation. Best case, the seller signs over the power of attorney and I side step my error.
Thanks for everyones help.
