New Hampshire Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form

The New Hampshire Limited (Special) Power of Attorney is a Power of Attorney that is centered on a particular activity or circumstance. That is, an individual (a party called the Principal), can enact one in order to direct a person or entity of their selection (a party called the Agent), to manage some kind of matter they cannot handle entirely by themselves. The matter may be about the Principal’s children, finances, property, taxes, investments, or another area of their personal or business life. Regardless of the matter they choose, the Principal should ensure the terms of the agreement are compliant with relevant state laws.


State Laws & Signing Requirements

State Laws – Uniform Power of Attorney Act

Signing Requirements – If the Limited Power of Attorney will endure even if the Principal becomes incapacitated (i.e. it is a durable type), the provision § 564-E:105(c) states that the Principal must sign the form before either a Notary Public or another party authorized by law to take acknowledgments.

If the Limited Power of Attorney will not endure in these circumstances (i.e. it is a general type), § 564-E:105(a) states that in addition to the Notary Public sighting the Principal’s signature, the Principal needs to sign and affix to the POA a specific disclosure statement that is provided by § 564-E:105.
