58-663.Application of law. (a) This act applies to the acts and transaction in this state of attorneys in fact under powers of attorney executed in this state or by residents of this state. Further, this act applies to acts and transactions of attorneys in fact in this state or outside this state under powers of attorney that refer to the power of attorney law of Kansas in the instrument creating the power of attorney, if any of the following conditions are met:

(1) The principal or attorney in fact was a resident of this state at the time the power of attorney was executed;

(2) the powers and authority conferred relate to property, acts or transactions in this state;

(3) the acts and transactions of the attorney in fact or successor occurred or were to occur in this state;

(4) the power of attorney was executed in this state; or

(5) there is otherwise a reasonable relationship between this state and the subject matters of the power of attorney.

The power of attorney so created remains subject to this act despite a subsequent change in residence of the principal or the attorney in fact and any successor, or the removal from this state of property which was the subject of the power of attorney.

(b) A person who acts as an attorney in fact or successor pursuant to a power of attorney governed by this act is subject to personal jurisdiction in this state with respect to matters relating to acts and transactions of the attorney in fact or successor performed in this state, performed for a resident of this state or affecting property in this state.

(c) A durable power of attorney that purports to have been made under the provisions of the durable power of attorney act of another state is governed by the law of that state and, if durable where executed, is durable and may be carried out and enforced in this state.

(d) A power of attorney executed by a resident of another state, may authorize the carrying out in this state of all acts permitted to be delegated to an attorney in fact by the laws of the state of the residence of the principal, the laws of the state where the power of attorney is executed or the laws of this state, whichever law is most favorable toward authorizing such delegation, and is durable if so designated either under the laws of this state, under the laws of the state of residence of the principal or under the laws of the state where the power of attorney is executed.
