As of July 14, 2018, the requirements for the execution of Powers of Attorneys in Kentucky have changed. Now all POAs will require two witnesses and a notary. This means the person giving the power (principal) will need to have two disinterested parties sign stating the person is over 18, of sound mind and free will. All signatures must be notarized.
POAs which were executed prior to July 14, 2018, without witnesses are still valid as long as they were properly drafted and signed according to the KRS.
What does this mean to you? Getting a POA is becoming a little more cumbersome. Please make sure your clients get a POA drafted by a Kentucky attorney. This is not only important for the new changes but also so the powers listed in the POA encompass everything the principal wants them to do.
