Wisconsin Real Estate (Property) Power of Attorney Form

As is the case with any of the many responsibilities adults are presented with throughout the lives, having another party to call on to help out with real estate responsibilities is incredibly helpful. That is why a Wisconsin Real Estate (Property) Power of Attorney has become a commonly used legal form. This form legally empowers an individual (referred to as the Principal) to delegate any kind of real estate task to another party of their choosing (referred to as their Agent). Regardless of whether the Principal already rents or owns a dwelling, or is planning to do so, they can use this form to formulate a written legal recording of any real estate tasks they have assigned to their Agent to manage on their behalf.
