West Virginia Revocation of Power of Attorney Form
Any Principal who is hesitant to enact a West Virginia Revocation of Power of Attorney for fear that their Agent will not agree to relinquish their powers should not worry about such a problem occurring. The reason they should not be concerned is because once a Principal has lawfully revoked a Power of Attorney (in this case, through the execution of this form and furnishing a copy of it to their Agent), the Agent is legally obligated—regardless of their own feelings on the matter—to abide by the terms of the revocation. That is, the Agent will be required to cease acting on behalf of the Principal as they will no longer possess the legal capacity to do so.
