A Mississippi real estate power of attorney form is a document that allows an owner of real property to grant decision-making authority relating to that property to a trusted person. The agent named here will be given the right to buy, refinance, maintain, or even sell the Principal’s real property through this document’s execution. These powers may be revoked at the Principal’s discretion once he or she provides written notice of revocation to the Attorney-in-Fact or by execution of a new document.
