Tittle companies will probably want a POA recorded as part of the transaction.

Is there any reason you don't want it recorded?

Sometimes people prefer to have a separate limited power of attorney prepared limited to just the one specific transaction.

Once it is recorded, the revocation has to be recorded. (Code Civ. Proc., sect. 1216.)

Civil Code section 2933 requires the power to be recorded if a party is going to execute a mortgage or a deed of trust.
