Washington Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form


The Washington Limited (Special) Power of Attorney is identifiable by its lack of breadth in terms of the actions it grants a party known as the Agent the authority to perform. To put it in another way, the document contains specific conditions that the Agent must always respect when carrying out any actions for the individual who wishes to execute the contract (who is legally referred to as the Principal). While they will possess restricted decision making powers, the Agent will still have, for all intents and purposes, considerable ability to support the Principal to reach their objectives.
