The Uniform Power of Attorney Act (UPAA), signed into law in the State of Florida in 2011, was designed to allow the use of a power of attorney to purchase and sell real estate, or perform other real estate transactions on behalf of the "principle" (the individual granting the power of attorney), by the "attorney-in-fact" (the individual, group, or institution that has been granted power of attorney).
The intention of the Uniform Power of Attorney Act was to make real estate purchasing, selling, and other real estate transactions easier on behalf of the "principle."
A Power of Attorney Document for Real Estate Purposes may be either a "limited power of attorney", "durable power of attorney," or "general power of attorney."
Limited Real Estate Power of Attorney: A limited power of attorney documents the limitations, specific authority, and restrictions that the "attorney-in-fact" has relating to specific pre-determined issues, such as real estate transactions.
General Real Estate Power of Attorney: A general power of attorney gives the "attorney-in-fact" wider authority to act on behalf of the "principle" than a limited power of attorney provides. And unlike a Durable Power of Attorney, a general power of attorney may be executed even when the "principle" is not incapacitated. A general power of attorney may also be terminated by the "principle" at any time he or she deems necessary.
Durable Real Estate Power of Attorney: A durable power of attorney is generally used in planning for the unfortunate circumstance of incapacitation of the "principle." The power of attorney authority would not begin unless incapacitation of the "principle" has occurred and would end when the "principle" has regained their physical and mental ability to act on their own behalf. A durable power of attorney typically grants the "attorney-in-fact" full authority over all real estate and property of the "principle." It is important to note that the "attorney-in-fact" must act in the best interest of the "principle." It may be considered a breach of fiduciary duty or even fraud if the "attorney-in-fact" acts in a manner that benefits their interests, rather than the interests of the "principle."
