Texas Revocation of Power of Attorney Form

It is integral that any Principal who wants to revoke a Power of Attorney properly informs their Agent of the revocation. That means that after completing a Texas Revocation of Power of Attorney—a legal document that records the Principal’s decision—the Principal must hand over a copy of the document to their Agent/s. Otherwise, in accordance with Texas’ “good faith laws” regarding Power of Attorney revocations (Sec. 751.054), if the Agent does not have knowledge of the revocation and acts under good faith, the revocation will “not revoke, suspend, or terminate the agency.”
