NEW MEXICO STATUTORY FORM POWER OF ATTORNEY

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

This power of attorney authorizes another person (your agent) to make decisions concerning your property for you (the principal). Your agent will be able to make decisions and act with respect to your property (including your money) whether or not you are able to act for yourself. The meaning of authority over subjects listed on this form is explained in the Uniform Power of Attorney Act.

 

This power of attorney does not authorize the agent to make health care decisions for you.

 

You should select someone you trust to serve as your agent. Unless you specify otherwise, generally the agent's authority will continue until you die or revoke the power of attorney or the agent resigns or is unable to act for you.

 

Your agent is entitled to reasonable compensation unless you state otherwise in the Special Instructions.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR AGENT

 

Agent's Duties

 

When you accept the authority granted under this power of attorney, a special legal relationship is created between you and the principal. This relationship imposes upon you legal duties that continue until you resign or the power of attorney is terminated or revoked. You must:

 

1. do what you know the principal reasonably expects you to do with the principal's property or, if you do not know the principal's expectations, act in the principal's best interest;

 

2. act in good faith;

 

3. do nothing beyond the authority granted in this power of attorney; and

 

4. disclose your identity as an agent whenever you act for the principal by writing or printing the name of the principal and signing your own name as "agent" in the following manner:

 

____________________________ by __________________________ as Agent

(Principal's Name)                                          (Your Signature)

 

Unless the Special Instructions in this power of attorney state otherwise, you must also:

 

1. act loyally for the principal's benefit;

 

2. avoid conflicts that would impair your ability to act in the principal's best interest;

 

3. act with care, competence and diligence;

 

4. keep a record of all receipts, disbursements and transactions made on behalf of the principal;

 

5. cooperate with any person that has authority to make health care decisions for the principal to do what you know the principal reasonably expects or, if you do not know the principal's expectations, to act in the principal's best interest; and

 

6. attempt to preserve the principal's estate plan if you know the plan and preserving the plan is consistent with the principal's best interest.

 

Termination of Agent's Authority

 

You must stop acting on behalf of the principal if you learn of any event that terminates this power of attorney or your authority under this power of attorney. Events that terminate a power of attorney or your authority to act under a power of attorney include:

 

1. death of the principal;

 

2. the principal's revocation of the power of attorney or your authority;

 

3. the occurrence of a termination event stated in the power of attorney;

 

4. the purpose of the power of attorney is fully accomplished; or

 

5. if you are married to the principal, a legal action is filed with a court to end your marriage, or for your legal separation, unless the Special Instructions in this power of attorney state that such an action will not terminate your authority.

 

Liability of Agent

 

The meaning of the authority granted to you is defined in the Uniform Power of Attorney Act. If you violate the Uniform Power of Attorney Act or act outside the authority granted, you may be liable for any damages caused by your violation.

 

If there is anything about this document or your duties that you do not understand, you should seek legal advice.
