I made a Power of Attorney for my property before the law changed. Do I need a new Power of Attorney?

Maybe not. If you made a valid Power of Attorney before the law changed on March 29, 1996, it is probably still valid. However, check that your attorney is still willing and able to act for you if it becomes necessary. Also check that the document says that your attorney can continue to act for you if you become mentally incapable of managing your property.
