Documents needed to create a Power of Attorney (POA)?
What are the Documents needed to create a Power of Attorney (POA) document at a notary public?
The specific requirements may vary depending on the jurisdiction and the purpose of the power of attorney. However, some common documents and information typically needed for creating a POA include:
- Identification: The person creating the power of attorney (known as the “principal”) and the appointed agent (known as the “attorney-in-fact” or “agent”) will need to present valid identification documents such as passports, driver’s licences, or national ID cards.
- Personal Information: Both the principal and the agent will need to provide their full legal names, addresses, contact information, and other relevant personal details.
- POA Form: The notary public may have a specific POA form that needs to be completed. This form will typically outline the powers granted to the agent and any limitations or conditions associated with the POA.
- The Notary public will confirm the identification and the powers granted, and then the document will be notarized.
