The Florida Limited Power of Attorney Form is a Power of Attorney Agreement that gives the Attorney-in-Fact power to make a specific decision or perform a specific action on behalf of the Principal. This is typically to allow the Attorney-in-Fact to make financial decisions on behalf of the Principal but other actions, such as selling a specific piece of property, are possible. This form cannot be used to give the Attorney-in-Fact the power to make medical or health care decisions.
Under Florida state law, all Power of Attorney agreements are limited. There are no blanket Power of Attorney Agreements allowed in Florida, and every power the Attorney-in-Fact has must be outlined and initialed separately within the agreement. In addition, Florida financial institutions have the right to request legal advice on whether they should accept a Power of Attorney agreement and time to make the decision.
