A Washington limited power of attorney is executed by the principal for the purposes of authorizing an agent/attorney-in-fact to act and make decisions on their behalf in a limited capacity. The principal will enter each task, such as a specific financial transaction, specific real and personal property transfers, a particular estate management duty, or hiring/firing certain personnel, onto the power of attorney document. Upon completion of their duties, the form becomes void and the agent is relieved of their position as attorney-in-fact. Alternatively, the principal could enter a date onto the document to establish a definitive termination date.
