There may be a situation where it is necessary to appoint another person, in your place, to sell some real estate on your behalf. This may occur if, for example, you (i.e. the Seller) live somewhere else or will otherwise be unavailable to handle the transaction personally.

This Limited Power of Attorney for the Sale of Real Estate allows a mentally competent adult (who is called the "Principal" or "Grantor") to authorize another person (called the "Agent" or "Attorney-In-Fact") to act on his or her behalf in selling certain real estate as specified in the Limited Power of Attorney document. This particular Power of Attorney becomes effective immediately and remains effective until (a) the real estate is sold and the transaction is completed; or (b) in the event of death or incapacity of the Grantor; or (c) if the Grantor revokes the document (whichever occurs first).

The word "attorney" is not used here to mean "lawyer". The person acting as the Attorney-In-Fact for the Principal doesn't need to be a lawyer. Almost anyone can be appointed an Attorney-In-Fact by a power of attorney. A Power of Attorney can always be revoked.

These are just some of the important provisions included in this Limited Power of Attorney for the Sale of Real Estate:
  • Names and addresses: Identifying and locating Grantor and Agent;
  • Power granted: Grant of power to Agent to sell property;
  • Location of property: Address of property to be sold;
  • Effective immediately: The Power of Attorney becomes effective immediately until certain conditions are met.
  • Reimbursements: Agent will be reimbursed all reasonable expenses;
  • Liability: gent shall not be liable for losses resulting from judgment errors made in good faith; and
  • Notary Acknowledgment Block: It is important for the document to be notarized and avoids problems later.

General Instructions & Checklist
 Limited Power of Attorney for Sale of Real Estate




   This Limited Power of Attorney for Sale of Real Estate becomes effective immediately and remains effective until (a) the real estate is sold and the transaction is completed; or (b) in the event of death or incapacity of the Principal; or (c) if the Principal revokes the document (whichever occurs first).

   The Principal (i.e. the person granting the Power of Attorney; sometimes called the Grantor) should sign the document before a Notary. Notarization will allow the Limited Power of Attorney for Sale of Real Estate to be recorded as a public record, if necessary.

   Although not always required, it is always a good idea to also have two witnesses sign the Power of Attorney. The witnesses should be adults. Generally, anyone related by blood or marriage to the Principal, the Agent or the Notary should not be a witness.

   The Principal should keep the original document, as well as a copy. The Agent should have access to the original document as needed.

   The Principal should also be very careful in the selection of the Agent and should be careful in instructing the Agent (i.e. Attorney-in-Fact).

   These forms are not intended and are not a substitute for legal advice. These forms should only be a starting point for you and should not be used without consulting with an Attorney first. An Attorney should be consulted before negotiating any document with another party.

Information
Limited Power of Attorney for Sale of Real Estate




It may sometimes become necessary to appoint another person as your Agent to sell some real estate on your behalf. This may occur if, for example, you (i.e. the Seller) live somewhere else or will otherwise be unavailable to handle the transaction personally.

A Limited Power of Attorney for Sale of Real Estate allows a “mentally” competent natural person (called the “Principal” or “Grantor”) to authorize someone else (called the “Agent” or “Attorney-In-Fact”) to act on his or her behalf in selling certain real estate as specified in the Limited Power of Attorney for Sale of Real Estate form. This particular form becomes effective immediately and remains effective until (a) the real estate is sold and the transaction is completed; or (b) in the event of death or incapacity of the Principal; or (c) if the Principal revokes the document (whichever occurs first).

Note that the word "attorney" is not used here to mean "lawyer".  The person acting as the Attorney-In-Fact for the Principal does not need to be a lawyer. Almost anyone can be appointed an Attorney-In-Fact by a power of attorney. The Agent should be a competent adult. The Grantor can revoke a General Power of Attorney at any time.

The Limited Power of Attorney for Sale of Real Estate should always be notarized, even if your state does not require it. Notarization will make it more difficult for any third party to challenge the validity of the Limited Power of Attorney for Sale of Real Estate and will allow it to be recorded as a public record, if necessary.

Although, some states dont require a Limited Power of Attorney for Sale of Real Estate to be witnessed, it is always a very good idea to do so.

Please note that this information is not intended as and is not a substitute for legal advice. Furthermore, this information is general information that is not state specific. Whenever appropriate, the instructions included with the forms packages offered for sale, generally include state specific instructions.







CAUTION!

PRINCIPAL: Before signing this document, consider its consequences. You (“Principal”) are providing another person (“Agent”) with the power to sell your real estate specified in the document on your behalf and to take all actions necessary to accomplish this.  Any such action undertaken by your agent, within the scope of this power of attorney document, is legally binding upon you.  If you have any questions about these powers, obtain competent legal advice. You may revoke this power of attorney if you later wish to do so.



AGENT: By accepting or acting under the appointment, the agent assumes the fiduciary and other legal responsibilities of an agent.
