A Power of Attorney or a POA is an important document that delegates a representative to act on a principal’s behalf. It is a letter that states that an attorney-in-fact can make legal decisions for the person. It needs Notary and Signing Services to make it legal and incontestable.
There are different kinds of Power of Attorney, and we, a Mobile Notary in Texas, listed them below for your reference.
- General Power of Attorney or GPA
General Power of Attorney is a legal document one can use for broader purposes – to manage finances, investments, properties, and others. It is valid until the work specified in the manuscript is done, reaches expiration, or when the principal is debilitated or deceased.
- Limited Power of Attorney
Limited POA gives a person authorized to act only on a specific task, like the management of properties. After that, the contract terminates.
- Durable Power of Attorney
This legal document states that the agent will have a lifetime authority to act on behalf of the principal, even until he is debilitated. That is why it needs proper Notarization. But can still be revoked upon the demand and initiation of the principal.
- Medical Power of Attorney
Medical POAs are Durable POAs for medical purposes.
We hope this gives you an idea of which POA applies to you.
