The Texas Limited Power of Attorney Form is used when the Principal wishes to give the Agent a single fixed power, usually to manage a specific account or investment, or to perform a specific action such as filing taxes or selling real estate. This agreement requires that the Principal specify what power they are giving to the Agent, as unlike most agreements it will not automatically be specified.
Under Texas state law, a Power of Attorney agreement must be signed and dated by at least two (2) adult witnesses or a Notary Public, in order to be valid. Unlike many states, there are no restrictions on who the witnesses can be. Most law offices will have a Notary Public or witnesses available, although as a Power of Attorney agreement can be drafted without a lawyer, the Principal may need to seek out their own witnesses.
