Full Question:

Is it a requirement to record a Power of Attorney within California? If so, whom do I record it with?

Answer:

It is not necessary to record a power of attorney unless it involves a real estate transaction. If a person will be signing a document affecting real property such as a deed, mortgage, deed of trust, or satisfaction or release of mortgage, the power of attorney should be recorded in the land records of the county in which the property is located.
