Ohio General Power of Attorney Form

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

The Ohio General Power of Attorney Form is designed for a Principal who wishes to give their Agent blanket power over the Principal’s financial affairs and monetary issues. This includes a wide range of actions that the Agent can perform, such as buying or selling large scale property, opening or managing bank accounts and giving gifts.

Under Ohio state law, a Power of Attorney agreement will automatically be Durable, and thus will last after the Principal has been incapacitated, unless the agreement itself states otherwise. Therefore if the Principal wishes for their agreement to be invalid after they have been declared incapacitated by a doctor, they will need to put a clause into the agreement indicating that.
