A West Virginia limited power of attorney authorizes an attorney-in-fact to act on the principal’s behalf with regard to one (1) or more specific functions. These functions are usually tasks related to finances, real or personal property, or estate management that the principal would prefer to have a representative handle for them. A limited power of attorney only allows the agent to perform the duties the principal records in the document. Like any other power of attorney, the attorney-in-fact must always operate with the principal’s best interests in mind. This type of document becomes void should the principal be incapacitated, unlike the durable power of attorney.
