South Carolina Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form
If a Principal (the party who executes a Power of Attorney) wants to make it known to their Agent (the party who has agreed to represent the Principal) that the authority they will grant them to act on their behalf is exercisable only in special, rather than unlimited circumstances, they should use a South Carolina Limited (Special) Power of Attorney. A Limited Power of Attorney is thus characterized by the precise framework it demands that the Agent must work within when acting on behalf of the Principal. By implication, if the Agent works outside of the framework, they will be in breach of the terms of this legally-binding contract.
