Florida Revocation of Power of Attorney Form
In line with state law, the Florida Revocation of Power of Attorney provides a legal means for a Principal to render a Power of Attorney (POA) they brought about invalid. Specifically, § 709.2110 states that a Principal may revoke a POA by “expressing the revocation in a subsequently executed power of attorney or other writing signed by the principal.” The reason it is advisable to use this particular document to do so is that it acts as a formal representation of the Principal’s decision. Moreover, it is easy to furnish a copy of it to any relevant parties.

Signing Requirements (§ 709.2109) – State law fails to mention any signing requirements for the lawful execution of a Revocation of Power of Attorney to take place. Likewise to the execution of the original Power of Attorney, the Principal is recommended to sign the form in the presence of two (2) witnesses and a Notary Public.
