North Carolina Revocation of Power of Attorney Form

The North Carolina Revocation of Power of Attorney (POA) upholds state law requirements regarding the revocation of a POA. As detailed by § 32C-1-110, if the POA was registered in a state office of the register of deeds, it must “be revoked by registration in that office by an instrument of revocation.” Whereas, if the POA was not registered, the Principal can either choose to execute a “written revocatory document” (such as this one) or destroy the POA. The former choice is preferable as it allows the Principal to retain a formal record of the revocation.
