3 – The Type Of Power The Agent Can Wield Must Be Principal Approved

The Real Estate Powers the Attorney-in-Fact can wield on behalf of the Principal are categorized in a brief four item list provided in “Article I. Assignment Of Authority.” The Attorney-in-Fact will need the Principal to approve each category where he or she must wield Principal Power in order to have that ability. Only the Principal can supply such approval, and this must be done through the Principal’s Act of Initialing.

The Principal will have to supply his or her initials to the blank line that precedes the label “Sale Of Real Estate” if he or she intends on granting the Agent the ability to make the decisions and take the actions necessary for selling a property on the Principal’s behalf. In addition to this, the Principal must mark the checkbox after the initialing. The “Sale of Real Estate” paragraph will contain two blank lines that must also be satisfied. The first blank space in this paragraph requires the Physical Address of the property the Agent may act with while the second blank space must have the Legal Description of this property entered. If there is not enough room for either of these pieces of information to be supplied, you may draw up a separate document with this information then attach it to this one. If the Principal has decided the Attorney-in-Fact must be able to arrange and execute the “Purchase Of Real Estate” on his or her behalf, then the Principal must initial and check the next statement. If so, the Physical Location and the Legal Description of the Real estate the Attorney-in-Fact may use Principal Powers with should be defined using the spaces after the term “…Located At” and “…Description Of” The Principal’s Management Powers over a Property may be conferred to the Attorney-in-Fact once the Principal initials the third paragraph and marks the checkbox just before the “Management Of Real Estate.” This paragraph must also have the concerned Property’s exact Location and Legal Description recorded in the required areas.  The Principal can deliver the Authority to Refinance a Property in his or her Name by tending to the “Refinancing” paragraph.

These Powers can be set to naturally Terminate on a specific Calendar Date by the Principal if he or she initials statement “a” and entering the Termination Date across the three blank spaces after the words “…Revocation Or Automatically On The.” If the Principal Powers should remain active until the “…Incapacity, Or Death, Or Revocation” of the Principal then the Principal should initial and check the area between the letter “b” and the words “(Non-Durable Option).” The Power in this document may be set to terminate only upon the “Death Or Revocation” of the Principal when the Principal initials and checks statement “c.”
