POA Responsibility?

If I have POA for my mother, am I responsible for her bills while she is still alive? I realize the POA is null and void once a person passes.


Thank you.

A POA doesn't mean you're responsible for the debts of your mother. You are only there to pay her bills, see to her medical conditions and take care of her because she isn't able to do this on her own. As long as she is still alive she is responsible for her debts and all you need to do is pay them online or through a check. There is nothing a creditor can do to you to collect an unpaid debt once she has died.

What if she has unpaid debt and owns a house?

You are not responsible for her debts. You just have the authority to pay them.

Yes just while she is alive and then it goes by her will if she has one.
