A South Carolina limited power of attorney is a legal form that authorizes an individual (agent) to perform specific duties and tasks on another individual’s behalf (principal). The duties of the agent named in this type of power of attorney are limited to only the assignments recorded in the document. The agent does not have the power to perform any other tasks for the principal unless another power of attorney document is executed. A limited power of attorney is non-durable; if the principal becomes incapacitated, the agent’s authority is revoked. The principal may choose if they want their agent’s powers to terminate upon completion of all assignments, or upon a particular termination date.
