A New Hampshire real estate power of attorney is a document that lets an individual (“principal”) choose someone else (“agent”) to act in their place and manage their real estate transactions. Unlike other more broad power of attorney forms, this document limits the agent to carrying out tasks related to real estate exclusively. The agent’s duties often include buying and selling property, collecting security deposits, evicting tenants, and performing maintenance and repairs. If the agent’s authority shall terminate when the principal becomes incapacitated, the power of attorney must be made “non-durable,” as decided in Article 3 of the document.
