Texas Powers of Attorney and Limited Powers of Attorney

Under Texas law, a person can give another person authority under a power of attorney to conduct business for them.  This is often done when a person does not want to handle or cannot handle business themselves.  Such circumstances include when a person is traveling out of the country for a long period of time; has become ill or weakened and does not want to deal with financial affairs;  is becoming incompetent or incapacitated; or has too much business to deal with and needs assistance handling different transactions.

There are limited powers of attorney and full powers of attorney.  Common powers that are conveyed through a power of attorney are as follows:

  • Real property transactions

  • Tangible personal property transactions

  • Stock and bond transactions

  • Commodity and option transactions

  • Banking and other financial institution transactions

  • Business operating transactions

  • Insurance and annuity transactions

  • Estate, trust, and other beneficiary transactions

  • Claims and litigation

  • Personal and family maintenance

  • Benefits from social security, Medicare, Medicaid, or other governmental programs or civil or military service

  • Retirement plan transactions

  • Tax matters
     

Texas Springing Powers of Attorney

The Springing Power of Attorney springs forth when a person becomes incapacitated or incompetent.  This type of power of attorney is a good idea for people that have businesses or business matters that may require immediate attention in the event some incident makes them incapacitated.  This allows the person to designate another person that can step up and handle financial affairs in the event of a unforeseen health problem.

This power of attorney like any other should only be given to someone that is trusted and that will do as the person wants.  This is because that the person who gave the power of attorney to another person is legally bound by the person that has the power of attorney. 

Duty to Act in Best Interest and Duty to Keep Accurate Records under a Power of Attorney

The person holding a power of attorney has the duty to act in the best interest of the person they are holding a power of attorney for as well as to keep accurate records of their actions while using the power of attorney.  Failure to comply with these duties can result in a breach of fiduciary duty lawsuit against the person holding the power of attorney. 

Austin Texas Breach of Fiduciary Duty Lawsuits and Misuse of a Power of Attorney

Under Texas law, a person that has given a power of attorney to another person or persons can file a lawsuit if the person or persons have abused the power of attorney and have negligently lost or intentionally stolen property from the person for which they hold the power of attorney.  These fraudulent or negligent abuse of powers of attorney or a power of attorney claims are called breach of fiduciary duty lawsuits.  

All too often people holding powers of attorney realize that they have access to another person's money, property, and assets, then begin to rationalize that the money, property, and assets are really their own or that they have a claim on some or all of the money, property, or assets.  When this happens, it is typically a short time before this person starts to take money, property, or assets that are not their own and abuse the power of attorney.  

If someone holds a power of attorney for you and that person has negligently lost or intentionally stolen your money, property, or assets; it is important to hire a Texas Negligent or Fraudulent Power of Attorney Abuse Lawyer that can help you rightfully reclaim your money, property, or assets.

Breach of Fiduciary Duty Lawsuits

There are several types of breach of fiduciary duty lawsuits under Texas law.  These lawsuits stem from special duties that implied by Texas law.  One example of these breach of fiduciary duty lawsuits is discussed above and is implied to people that hold powers of attorney for another person.  Other potential breach of fiduciary duty lawsuits include guardians, executors, administrators, agents, attorneys, accountants, and brokers.  Feel free to contact Texas Breach of Fiduciary Duty Lawyer Jason Coomer, if you have a question about a Texas breach of fiduciary duty claim that you might have. 

Texas Guardian Fraud Lawyer & Guardian Mismanagement

Guardians also have a duty under Texas probate law to properly manage and distribute an estate for a ward.  Guardians that mismanage an estate of a Ward can have a breach of fiduciary duty lawsuit filed against them to reclaim any money or other assets that were mismanaged or stolen.  Guardians that commit fraud or negligently lose or destroy assets in an estate can be held responsible under Texas law for wrongful acts.
