A Georgia real estate power of attorney form allows a person (the “principal”) to appoint a representative (the “agent”) to handle the purchase, sale, management, or refinancing of a piece of real estate on their behalf. The agent will be able to sign documents, withdraw and dispense funds, and act as a consultant to review and negotiate a purchase and sale agreement prior to closing.
