The South Dakota Real Estate (Property) Power of Attorney gives the principal the ability to give a person they trust (their “attorney-in-fact” or “agent”) the authority to purchase, sell, and/or manage real property in their place, on a temporary or near-permanent basis. The form is commonly used to give an attorney or real estate professional permission to handle a real estate closing without the presence of the principal (buyer). However, the form is also frequently used by property owners to give another person the right to manage their rental properties while they are gone or unavailable.
