A Georgia limited power of attorney is a document that empowers an agent to manage the personal affairs of the principal in a restricted capacity. In a limited power of attorney, the agent cannot perform any transactions other than the specific acts delegated by the principal. The agent’s duties are often temporary and expire after the tasks are complete. The principal can further limit the agent’s authority by imposing a deadline upon which the document automatically terminates. A limited power of attorney is not “durable” and, therefore, becomes void if the principal loses their capacity to make competent decisions.
