Massachusetts Real Estate (Property) Power of Attorney Form

The Massachusetts Real Estate (Property) Power of Attorney offers a range of functions in regards to the management of property-related issues. Specifically, it provides an individual (called the Principal) with the opportunity to establish a legally-binding relationship with another party (called the Agent) who consents to running one or more of their real estate affairs for them. In most cases, these affairs will entail the Agent leasing, selling, refinancing, renovating, and/or purchasing a piece of real estate on the Principal’s behalf.

Signing Requirements – As a Real Estate (Property) POA does not require the Principal to sign the form in any particular manner, it is the Principal’s choice if they want to sign the form with or without the presence of a Notary Public and/or two (2) witnesses. They should, however, keep in mind that legal professionals recommend that either or both of these parties are present.
