Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
I am Al and am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Thanks. As a witness you are not a party to the deed and therefore you should not have anything too much to worry about providing you were not somehow complicit in the matter and no fraud has been subsequently committed (ie the POA has been used to fraudulently obtain money).
The only party who could get into trouble, if the truth ever came out, was the party who asked you to act as witness.
However, you should refrain from signing the Husband's POA, now that you realise your previous mistake. You should tell your friend the truth and explain the position - if she is a good friend, hopefully she will understand.
I hope this helps and sets out the legal position.
Many thanks for your assistance. I will follow your advice. It has put my mind at rest - somewhat.
Again many thanks.
Thanks Janet- the only person who could get into trouble is the person who asked you to sign.
If I have helped, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer.
