Can a bank deny's an agents POA and tell them they need to bring the parent in no matter what condition the parent is in? And caAnd can the Bank begin calling and questioning the parent whether the parent is mentally fit or not and determine if they will accept the POA or is the bank violating any laws?
I practice in Maryland, not NY, and the laws may differ. Maryland has a statute on this subject with a Model POA. If your POA complies with that form, the Bank is required to honor it. If not, you can sue for damages. This is a matter of State law. I would strongly suggest that you consult with a local attorney (perhaps selected from the AVVO website resources) with experience in this area of law, to offer a free initial consultation and perhaps assist with the process. If this information was helpful to you, even if you do not like or agree with the advice, please let me know by clicking on the “Helpful” or “Best Answer” button. Good luck!

I agree- you need to contact a local attorney and set up a free consultation with an experienced attorney.
You should consult with an attorney who can review your power of attorney to determine whether or not it is proper. The attorney may also be able to assist you in dealing with the bank.
