The California Limited Power of Attorney Form is used to give the Attorney-in-Fact power over a to make a specific decision or set of decisions on behalf of the Principal, rather than broad power over the Principal’s decisions as in a General Agreement. What decisions the Attorney-in-Fact has power over will be specified in the agreement itself, but will typically be financial or property related.
Note that, unless specified otherwise, this kind of agreement will take effect immediately and run until revoked, a point specified in the Power of Attorney Agreement (such as finishing selling or buying a property) or the Principal becomes incapacitated. In addition, this cannot be used to give the Attorney-in-Fact power over the Principal’s medical care or End of Life desires. A Medical Power of Attorney Agreement or a Living Will would be required for that.
