Description:
The presentation will cover the revisions to the Power of Attorney Law - Chapter 323 of the Laws of 2020 (effective June 13, 2021) and the 2021 Chapter Amendment. On December 15, 2020 NY enacted revisions to its laws government statutory short form powers of attorney. The new law replaces “exact wording” with “substantially conforms to the wording;” eliminates the Statutory Gifts Rider; changes the signing requirement; has changes to construction sections; provides for an acceptance of and reliance time line; and provides for damages and attorney fees when a form is rejected with no reasonable basis.  It will also cover changes to the form, best practices, and suggestions for the modification section to provide for gifting. This CLE will provide the practitioner with information about important changes, and provide you with guidance to help you prepare for these changes prior to the law’s effective date.
