A Florida real estate power of attorney  is a legal document used to provide a selected agent (i.e. an individual, attorney, or real estate agent) with the permission to refinance, sell or manage real property in the name of its issuer (or principal). Once completed, the document must be signed by the principal before two witnesses and a notary public. This document may be revoked at any time by providing written notice and serving it to the current agent named within it or by implementing a new document that will immediately invalidate the current document.
