Are you living with your partner, who is paying 1/2 the rent, RIGHT?

If the rent is not split, I can see so many red flags that the POA would question about for your benefit. Removing someone's name from a lease while that person is living there will not solve any issues if there is concern of exploitation. Talk to POA, figure this out.

It is a POAs responsibility to make decisions that the principal- you - would make, not what they would do or what they think is best - it is not in their scope of responsibilities to judge your choices - even if they are bad ones. Not saying your choice is bad - clearly I don't know enough to say one way or another - just saying how POA is suspose to work.

If this person is your guardian, conservator or trustee - it's a different story - different set of responsibility. So - that said, you are free to reassign POA to someone else as long as you have not been judged incompetent in a court of law.

None of us like someone else telling us what to do. That said, how does your POA have control of your money? Are you putting your SSI ( auto deposit) into a bank account that POA has control of? Did you have problems managing your money in the past and so you decided to sign the POA and let the POA pay your bills? Tell us more about how it is the POA has control of your money so we can help you figure out what to do. Are you living with POA now and you want to move out with your friend? We read about so many different problems on here that sometimes we make assumptions about the situation. It's much better if you tell us so we can answer correctly. But as has already been stated, you are the person who gets to make decisions about what happens with your life and your money UNLESS you have been diagnosed as incompetent to do so by a doctor. If you are competent you can reassign your POA to another person. Let us know more about what is going on.

Change your poa's to someone that will not challenge your decisions. As long as you are competent poa does not have power.

POA has no authority over where you live. The POA has the responsibility to tell you if you cannot afford the apartment. POA handles financial matters when you cannot. The person who has medical proxy aka healthcare POA (which you may have named in your Advance Directive) has authority over where you live, but only if you cannot make such a decision yourself.

Why would your POA object to the place you have selected? Does she think it is too expensive? That you won't be able to manage on your own independently? That it is too far away from people who can help you? I am sure that you are not talking here that the wallpaper is hideous or the carpeting is ugly. So why doesn't the POA like it?

You do realize that you can change POA at any time, right?
