Q: 

does a power of attorney ever expire?

A:  The document is still valid in 2010, assuming that your mother remains mentally competent. However, if your mother has become mentally incompetent, whether the document remains valid depends on what type of power of attorney it is. A ''durable'' power of attorney expressly states that it remains valid even if the principal (here, your mother) becomes incompetent.

A:  First, you have to get permission from the lender. Changing ownership of a property may trigger the due on sale clause of the mortgage. However, in this case I think they might be agreeable since it will protect their interest. The other issue is she may have to sell her interest to you. Still another issue is that bankruptcy may look at assets that go back a few years to see if they are being hidden. Your best bet it to get a real estate attorney to advise you of the best way to handle this. Thanks. I''m the only person on the mortgage deed.
