Louisiana Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form

The Louisiana Limited (Special) Power of Attorney allows an individual to note down, either in a statement and/or a list, the specific tasks they require another party (named the Mandatory) to complete on their behalf. The scope of the agreement, as well the provisions contained within, should clearly define the parameters of the Mandatory’s decision making powers. Doing so will bind the Mandatory to act only in the special circumstances and manner the Principal wishes them to.
