Utah Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form
An Agent who is granted authority to manage the affairs of a Principal under a Utah Limited (Special) Power of Attorney must be cautious that they do not overstep the boundaries this agreement places on the decision making powers they have been designated. Dissimilar to some Power of Attorney agreements, a Special Power of Attorney administers constraints on the Agent by limiting which affairs they may can manage and the means by which they can do so. These constraints may prove to be mutually beneficial for both parties. For example, compared to an agreement with broader terms, the Principal will be able to retain greater control over how the Agent may act, while the Agent will not have to carry such a heavy responsibility.
