Tennessee Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form
Unless there is a relevant specific-purpose form available for use, all Power of Attorney arrangements which carry a limited purpose should be recorded in a Tennessee Limited (Special) Power of Attorney. The reason this form is so handy is because it gives the creator (a party called the Principal) the assurance that the individual or entity they nominate (called their Agent) will only be able to act to achieve the special purpose they identify in the form. By implication, the circumstances the Agent is authorized to represent them will be clearly defined and regulated.
State Laws & Signing Requirements
State Laws – Uniform Durable Power of Attorney Act
Signing Requirements – The law is silent on the matter of signing requirements for a Limited Power of Attorney. It is thus recommended that the Principal signs the form before:
- Two (2) disinterested witnesses, and/or
- A Notary Public.
