Utah Real Estate (Property) Power of Attorney Form


By delegating decision making powers to another party, the Utah Real Estate (Property) Power of Attorney can make the process of handling real estate affairs substantially easier. In line with § 75-9-204, these affairs may include, but are not limited to developing, selling, leasing, retaining title for security, and consenting to partitioning a property. That is, this contract lawfully establishes the decision for one party (the Principal) to delegate particular powers to another individual or entity (the Agent). 

Additional Considerations

If an individual is mulling over whether to enact a Real Estate Power of Attorney, they should consider what benefits it will provide them. For example, executing one can make handling real estate affairs much simpler. This is because with one, the Principal will not need to take on board as many responsibilities and obligations solely by themselves.
