Nevada Revocation of Power of Attorney Form

A Principal to a Power of Attorney (POA) can exercise their legal right to terminate a Power of Attorney and/or their Agent’s powers by completing a Nevada Revocation of Power of Attorney. As stated by NRS 162A.270, once the Principal has made their decision to revoke the POA, they must inform their Agent of the decision. This can be easily achieved by furnishing them with a copy of the completed Revocation of Power of Attorney form. The reason why it is essential to do so is explained in the section below.

Additional Requirements

The reason it is crucial for the Principal to inform the Agent is because if they are not duly informed, they may continue to perform any actions as per usual. This is problematic as the Principal and their successors will be bound by such actions, unless they are invalid or unenforceable.

State Laws & Signing Requirements

State Laws – Power of Attorney For Financial Matters and Durable Power of Attorney For Health Care Decisions

Signing Requirements – Nevada state law is silent on the matter of signing requirements for a Power of Attorney to be revoked. In line with standard legal agreement signing processes, it is strongly recommended that the Principal signs the agreement before a Notary Public and two (2) disinterested witnesses.
