Can an attorney-in-fact delegate a work conferred on him by a power of attorney to another?
My wife, who lives in New Jersey, executed a power of attorney so that one of her managers can manage her business accounts. This includes maintaining her finances and filing tax return. The manager delegated all those activities to an account management firm because he felt the tasks require special skills. Can he legally do that?02/15/2017 | Category: Power of Attorney | State: New Jersey | #32200
“If the power of attorney shall specifically provide, the attorney-in-fact, in the exercise of reasonable care, skill and caution, may delegate to other agents such one, more, or all of the specific powers which have been conferred on the attorney-in-fact by the power of attorney.”
In the instant case, the manager can probably delegate the work because maintaining finance transactions and filing tax return arguably requires specific finance management skills.
