New Mexico Revocation of Power of Attorney Form

The New Mexico Revocation of Power of Attorney is a document that establishes the required legal conditions for a Principal to discontinue a Power of Attorney they seek to end. The Principal should ensure they are familiar with the legal requirements that must be met to completely terminate a Power of Attorney and the Agent’s respective powers. Namely, as § 45-5B-110 states, an Agent will not be held liable for any acts they perform once the Power of Attorney is terminated if they do not possess “actual knowledge of the termination.” For this reason, it is vital that in addition to enacting this form, the Principal makes the revocation known to the Agent.
