A Vermont limited power of attorney (LPOA) is a type of power of attorney that authorizes the agent named in the document to handle specific assignments on behalf of the principal. The agent, or attorney-in-fact, may only perform the duties that are described in the LPOA. In many cases, the power of attorney will terminate upon the agent’s completion of said duties. Alternatively, the principal may elect to have the document terminate on a specific date established therein. An LPOA is non-durable, meaning it will be revoked if the principal is no longer capable of making decisions for themselves.
