Iowa Power of Attorney Affidavit Law

Power of Attorney and Health Care – General – Iowa

1.  The death, disability, or incompetence of any principal who has executed a power of attorney in writing other than a power as described by section 633.705, does not revoke or terminate the agency as to the attorney in fact, agent or other person who, without actual knowledge of the death, disability, or incompetence of the principal, acts in good faith under the power of attorney or agency. Any action so taken, unless otherwise invalid or unenforceable, binds the principal and the principal’s heirs, devisees, and personal representatives.

2.  An affidavit, executed by the attorney in fact or agent stating that the attorney in fact or agent did not have, at the time of doing an act pursuant to the power of attorney, actual knowledge of the revocation or termination of the power of attorney, by death, disability or incompetence, is, in the absence of fraud, conclusive proof of the nonrevocation or nontermination of the power at that time. If the exercise of the power requires execution and delivery of any instrument which is recordable, the affidavit when properly acknowledged is likewise recordable.

3.  This section shall not be construed to alter or affect any provision for revocation or termination contained in the power of attorney.
