Texas Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form
A regularly-used, legally-binding document, the Texas Limited (Special) Power of Attorney (POA) is one of the main types of POA arrangements that any capable individual is welcome to execute. A defining attribute of Limited POA arrangements is the precision in which the terms of the Principal-Agent relationship are described (with the Principal being the party who wants to transfer decision making powers to another party, and the Agent representing that other party). This precision makes it clear to the Agent that their powers will be limited and special, instead of being all-encompassing and general.
State Laws & Signing Requirements
State Laws – Durable Powers of Attorney
Signing Requirements (§ 751.0021) – State law does not note signing requirements for Limited Power of Attorney arrangements. The course of action most experts recommend when the law is silent on signing requirements is for the Principal to sign the Power of Attorney before two (2) witnesses and/or a Notary Public.
