Maryland Revocation of Power of Attorney Form
The Maryland Revocation of Power of Attorney is a form that acts as a legal instrument to terminate a Power of Attorney. It is compliant with Maryland’s state laws regarding the revocation of a Power of Attorney, namely § 17-112. This provision states that both a Power of Attorney and an Agent’s powers will terminate upon the Principal revoking the Power of Attorney. Given the significant change this form will bring about, it is vital that the Principal personally decides to execute it, and is not pressured to do so by any other party.

Signing Requirements (§ 17-110) – Considering the absence of signing requirements relevant to a Maryland Revocation of Power of Attorney form, the Principal is able to decide for themselves if they wish to have their signature witnessed by witnesses and/or acknowledged before a Notary Public. It is ideal if both of these parties can be present when they sign the form. If this is not possible, the presence of either one of these parties is also advisable.
