Property Management and a POA?

My husband is incarcerated and he has at least 6 homes that his dad has been taking care of, a system that has been working. Now his dad brought POA papers to my husband requesting he sign them, he didn't. My husband wrote a simple letter giving him power as overseer of the property, that's it! He had it notarized. Well his dad is really pushing this POA and I'm starting to question his motives. My question is why isn't the letter enough; why keep pushing for POA?

Why are you not chosen as the POW? Is your name on any deeds? Are these properties that your husband obtained before your marriage? Why do you not speak to Dad about why he wants POW? If you're married, you should be included with decisions I would think. Something doesn't sound right here from info provided. There's two sides to this.

I agree with the prior responder-something is fishy here. There is a big legal difference between a simple letter and a formal POA. Do you have ownership in the properties? If so, why are you not the POA? Have you discussed your concerns with your father-in-law?

Appears you need to check with an attorney to clarify the situation and protect your husband's and your interests in the properties. You can try legal aid and other free and reduced fee legal resources in your area.
Your husband must not sign anything with his father until you speak with an attorney.

I do not believe anyone here can really help you with this as legal representation is what you need. A simple notarized letter granting your father-in-law as "overseer" of property does not give him very much legal control - not like a POA would.

Is your name on any of the property?
If not - why?
It seems for sure that your father-in-law wants more control than just "looking" after the property so it would be wise for you to try to protect what may be yours(?) and your husbands property.

You probably will not qualify for free legal services but you should try to find an attorney who is familiar with this type of situation.
