Basically the same. It’s usually a limited POA for the specific purpose of _____________. This blank gets filled in, like for the purpose of i.e, contracting and closing the sale of xxx property.

Can someone please tell me the difference between Power of Attorney for real estate, and a land trust. It seems that they do about the same thing, but the POA doesn’t seem to be as complicated. Can a POA be used in a preforeclosure situation?

All responses appreciated.

Maybe I’m missing something here; but what would the similarities be?

A land trust conveys benefits along with the incidents of real estate ownership to a designated beneficiary, while holding the property in anonymity without the need for title transfer to a 2nd or 3rd party. It is essentially an alternative form of transfer of real estate ownership. My understanding of a Limited POA, on the other hand, is that it merely nominates a person to act Attorney-in-Fact relative to certain limited and delineated functions with regard to some specific facet of an individual’s legal affairs.

Did I miss your point? Or is this what you were looking for?
