Power Of Attorney

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Personal Information: Both the principal and the agent will need to provide their full legal names, addresses, contact information, and other relevant personal details.
  3. 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.
  4. The Notary public will confirm the identification and the powers granted, and then the document will be notarized.
