Vermont Revocation of Power of Attorney Form
The Vermont Revocation of Power of Attorney is a formal recording of a Principal’s decision to withdraw any and all powers they previously granted their Agent upon the execution of a Power of Attorney. This form is compliant with state laws on the matter of revoking a Power of Attorney, namely 14 V.S.A. § 3507, which states that, “whether durable or not, at any time by notification to the agent orally, or in writing, or by any other act evidencing a specific intent to revoke.” This provision also safeguards the right of the Principal to revoke a Power of Attorney by stating that the Agent is legally required to comply with their decision.
