    Default How to Update a Recorded Power of Attorney

    My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Washington

    In August 2005 the lawyer had the Durable Power of Attorney and Power of Attorney for Healthcare recorded.

    I now need to make changes to the Attorney-in-Fact, Special Attorney-in-Fact, Guardian, and successors in the above documents.

    Once I update the documents with the new names and get the documents notarized, do I rerecord the documents? I would prefer to unrecord/remove the current recorded documents, that way if there would be another change further down the road (though I hope not) I would only need to make the changes and get the document(s) notarized.

    Which would be best to do?

    Thank you for your time.

    Default Re: How to Update a Recorded Power of Attorney

    This pamphlet includes a form (the last page) to record with the county clerk to revoke a power of attorney.

    If you want to record the new ones then, yes, you can record the new ones.
