Act 386 of 1998


700.5504 Power of attorney not revoked until notice.

Sec. 5504.

(1) The death of a principal who has executed a written power of attorney, durable or otherwise, does not revoke or terminate the agency as to the attorney in fact or other person who, without actual knowledge of the principal's death, acts in good faith under the power. An action taken as provided in this subsection, unless otherwise invalid or unenforceable, binds the principal's successors in interest.

An action taken as provided in this subsection, unless otherwise invalid or unenforceable, binds the principal and his or her successors in interest.
