A Mississippi limited power of attorney authorizes an agent to act on behalf of an individual (referred to as the “principal”) for a limited purpose and time period. The completed document will describe the acts that the agent will be able to perform in the principal’s name and the manner in which the power of attorney will be terminated.
A limited power of attorney may expire once the designated acts have been completed, the expiration date has been reached, or if the principal issues a written revocation. This type of arrangement is not “durable,” which means it also terminates if the principal is incapacitated. Although it is not legally required, it is recommended to have the principal’s signature notarized for added verification.
