South Carolina Revocation of Power of Attorney Form


If a Principal to a Power of Attorney who wants it to end either a) cannot wait until the Power of Attorney terminates as per its terms of termination or b) created a Power of Attorney without any terms regarding its termination, they can file a South Carolina Revocation of Power of Attorney. As is the case with revoking any other kind of legal contract, there will be implications of the revocation for all parties involved. For this particular contract, the revocation will mean that the Principal can no longer direct the Agent to act on their behalf, and by implication, the Agent will no longer be allowed to represent the Principal.
