An Arizona real estate power of attorney (POA) is a document used to appoint a representative (the “agent” or “attorney-in-fact”) to buy, sell, or manage residential and commercial property on behalf of another person (the “principal”). In the form, the principal will be able to relay the type of authority granted to the agent. Depending upon its purpose, the arrangement can be for a limited duration or a more general appointment without a set termination date. The principal can also make the POA durable or non-durable. If the agreement is non-durable, it will terminate automatically if the principal becomes disabled or incapacitated.
