Free Power of Attorney
Managing Your Real Estate

This free power of attorney is ideal for appointing an Agent to manage
your real estate, without granting the broad powers that are normally included in a general power of attorney.

This real estate POA does not empower your Agent to buy or sell any of your real estate properties.

You can issue a limited power of attorney for a single transaction (also available at no cost from our site), or you can incorporate those provisions into this document.

Free Power of Attorney - Legal Requirements

The document must be notarized and if you include the power to do real estate transactions (buying and selling real estate) it must be filed with the relevant government office i.e. County Clerk or Deeds Office.

You can appoint different people as your Agents in a financial POA (e.g. your accountant), in a real estate POA (e.g. your realtor son) and in your general POA (e.g. your wife). Note though that you then need to add limitations in your general POA to exclude handling your finances or real estate transactions.

Please Note:

The free power of attorney form above empowers your agent to act on your behalf.

However! It does not spell out the payment terms, obligations, warranties etc.

The advantage of keeping the documents separate means you can revoke this limited free Power of Attorney, without cancelling the property management contract at the same time. A revocation of power of attorney can be signed at any time and for any reason that you may have.

As mentioned earlier on the page, here are three free legal documents that you may find useful:

  • Property Management Contract - A comprehensive document that details the specific duties of the Manager and various fees payable by Owner over an extended period of time.
  • Commmission Agreement - This provides for just the procurement and placing of a tenant without entering into a management contract.
  • Proxy Form - In point number 7 of our free power of attorney form above, there is authorization for your Agent to attend and vote on your behalf at all meetings.
    You can delete that provision (renumber the following paragraphs correctly) and issue a Proxy Form as and when for specific meetings only.
