A Florida limited power of attorney is used by an individual (“principal”) to grant another person (“agent”) the ability to perform financial actions on their behalf. A limited power of attorney does not grant broad powers but instead defines the specific actions the agent can carry out. It may also impose a time limit that, once expired, terminates the document along with the agent’s authority. These restrictions make it so the agent won’t have free rein over the principal’s affairs, ensuring that only the designated tasks are executed. The principal can revoke the document at any point with a revocation statement written in accordance with § 709.2110.
