Vermont Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form

The clearly defined provisions that characterize a Vermont Limited (Special) Power of Attorney make it far easier for a Principal who enacts this legal document to regulate the reach of decision making powers they wish to grant their chosen Agent. This document effectively limits the Agent’s powers in such a way that makes it unlawful for the Agent to act outside the scope of their powers. As the Agent must carry out any provisions in the manner the Principal has made known in the form, the Principal should ensure they accurately convey their intentions in a way that is easy for the Agent to both understand and follow.
