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.
