West Virginia Real Estate (Property) Power of Attorney Form


The West Virginia Real Estate (Property) Power of Attorney is a legal agreement that outlines how an individual with tasks related to a real property wishes to delegate them to another party. The individual, referred to as the Principal, may be anyone who either already owns a property or intends to. The party they delegate their real estate tasks, referred to as the Agent, may be anyone the Principal believes will be able to effectively start or continue the tasks to completion. The tasks will usually be related in some way to the management, purchase, sale, lease, or refinancing of one or more properties.
