Power of Attorney Form - Various Applications

It is always advisable to use a limited POA where possible, rather than a general power of attorney! Real estate matters can be perfectly handled with a limited real estate power of attorney form. You do not need to grant your Agent the broad powers as in a general power of attorney.

Note: If you appoint a person to handle your property affairs but you appoint a different person as your attorney in your General Power of Attorney, you may want to add a limitation on your General POA to exclude any real estate transactions.

Note: This document and any revocation of your power of attorney must be filed with the relevant government office i.e. County Clerk or Deeds Office.

This is not a durable power of attorney and will therefor be revoked should the principal become mentally incapacitated. It will also be invalidated automatically upon the death of the principal, whereafter any property affairs will be handled by the executor of the estate.

The power of attorney will also end once the specified real estate transactions have been concluded.
