A Massachusetts Limited Power of Attorney Form is designed to keep an Attorney-in-Fact’s power to a minimum. Unlike a General Power of Attorney Form, it only gives the Attorney-in-Fact power over one of the Principal’s decisions. Often times this is to perform a specific action, such as managing investments or buying or selling a car, and will become void once the action has been performed.
In order to be valid, a Massachusetts Power of Attorney Agreement must be witnessed by either a Notary Public or two (2) people who are unrelated to either the Principal or the Attorney-in-Fact. This agreement is easily the most flexible of the Power of Attorney forms, as it allows the Principal to surrender very specific power to the Attorney-in-Fact.
