Acceptance of Power of Attorney by bank.
My elderly friend gave me a Durable Power of Attorney just before moving to a third world country. His bank refuses to accept the power of attorney, stating that it has to be on ”their form.” The only difference between their form and the POA is that at the bottom of their form is the bank’s name and form number. They agree that the signature of my friend is authentic and the form complies with Texas law.
Can I force the bank to accept the power of attorney?
I need his banking statement to file his taxes.
