New Mexico Revocation of Power of Attorney Form

A New Mexico Revocation of Power of Attorney is used for terminating any active POA form. Once completed and signed, the Principal (the person that originally created the POA) will need to deliver the revocation document to any person or entity that originally received a copy of the POA.

As stated by § 45-5B-110, the Agent (person carrying out the tasks) will not be held liable for any acts they perform prior to the POA being terminted, even if the revocation was signed after this time. In other words, the Principal cannot just complete and sign the form in order for the Agent’s powers to be removed – they must inform the Agent personally and give them the revocation form.
