This program provides a comprehensive review and discussion of the North Carolina Uniform Power of Attorney Act in advance of its effective date on January 1, 2018.

The program speakers are the primary drafters of the new Act and just a few of the numerous people who shared their insight and experience with the drafters.

As a result, the speakers are uniquely qualified to provide insight on the Act, its history, changes to NC law under the new Act, the provisions of the new Act, and the application of these provisions.

Specifically, this CLE focuses on a review of the general and specific authorities that may be granted to an agent by the principal, agent duties and liabilities, and discussions of the use and application of a power of attorney under the new Act for gifting, estate planning, real estate transactions, banking, and judicial relief.

Highlights of this program are the discussions regarding the new North Carolina Statutory Short Form Power of Attorney and the introduction and review of an alternative form for a North Carolina power of attorney, including drafting tips for a power of attorney under NC law and the new Act.
