Pennsylvania Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form

If placing limitations on the ability of their Attorney-in-Fact is of importance to a Principal, it is in their best interests to enact a Pennsylvania Limited (Special) Power of Attorney. The reason being is that this legal document includes provisions that meet this exact purpose. That is, a Limited Power of Attorney has legally-binding clauses that work to ensure the Attorney-in-Fact that a Principal nominates to act on their behalf can only assert the decision making powers they have been been bestowed in the specific ways the Principal wants them to.

Signing requirements (§ 5601(b)) – In order to be considered valid, the document must be:
