Revoke a Power of Attorney

You can revoke a Power of Attorney at any time and for whatever reason you wish.

You don't need to give a reason!

It may be because you don't need the document anymore, you don't trust the person whom you appointed or the person has moved away, or you found a more suitable person etc.

The moment you revoke a power of attorney i.e. sign a revocation of power of attorney, it cancels and immediately terminates the power of attorney referenced.

A power of attorney always terminates upon the death of the principal. It also terminates when the principal becomes incapacitated, unless the POA specifically states that it is a durable or lasting power of attorney.

Refer to our Power of Attorney Main Page for additional information, guidelines and more free power of attorney forms.
