Vermont Power of Attorney Forms

The Vermont Power of Attorney Forms outline the required conditions for a relationship between a Principal and Agent to be valid in the eyes of the law. A Principal is the name given to a party who has decided to authorize another party to manage their affairs in their absence. The party who agrees to manage the Principal’s affairs in their absence is referred to as the Agent. A Principal is responsible for choosing their own agent, whom should be a trusted individual known to them, or an entity, such as a company, that possesses the necessary expertise to effectively manage their affairs.
