North Carolina Limited Power of Attorney Form
A North Carolina limited power of attorney gives an agent the right to carry out tasks as ordered by a principal. It is appropriate to use a limited power of attorney (opposed to other types) when handling short-lasting, simple tasks for another person. Principals must understand that this form is not durable and immediately ends upon their death or incapacitation.
Per North Carolina law, the principal can set an effective date on the form so that it goes into effect on a certain day or after an event. They must include the details of the arrangement and communicate with the agent to ensure they have properly interpreted the terms.
Signing requirements (§ 32C-1-105): Notarization mandatory.
