A Tennessee Limited Power of Attorney Form gives the Attorney-in-Fact extremely restricted powers. This is usually only a single power or task to perform, as it is most commonly used by a Principal who simply wishes to delegate a task or management of a task. These agreements are rarely Durable and can occasionally even terminate once the Attorney-in-Fact has completed their task.
Under Tennessee state law, a Power of Attorney agreement must be witnessed by either a Notary Public or two (2) adult witnesses in order to be valid. Unlike many states, there are no restrictions on who the witnesses can be, IE they can be related by blood or adoption to either the Principal or Attorney-in-Fact, etc. The Principal should be ready for this requirement when drafting a Power of Attorney agreement, although many law offices will have witnesses or a Notary Public available.
