A Virginia limited power of attorney is a document used for the purpose of granting limited powers to an authorized agent, also known as an attorney-in-fact. The principal (the individual executing the document) will enter what duties and assignments they want their agent to perform during the course of the power of attorney’s validity. The agent is only allowed to carry out those specific tasks, and must always act with the principal’s best interests in mind. The limited power of attorney is non-durable, meaning it becomes void if the principal is incapacitated.
