South Carolina Limited Power of Attorney Form
A South Carolina limited power of attorney defines an agent’s role and responsibilities so they can successfully carry out tasks on behalf of a principal. It has a shorter duration than other types of power of attorney forms because it ends once the duties have been fulfilled. The form is often used when a principal needs an agent to handle their investments, business matters, or legal affairs. However, it can be selected for any one-time task that does not fall under another category.
The agent must keep the form so that they can present it upon request. For instance, if the agent is cashing a check for a principal, the bank will ask for a copy of the limited power of attorney. This process confirms that the principal approves of the transaction.
Signing requirements (§ 62-8-105): The principal must sign in front of two (2) witnesses and a notary public.
