Revoking a Power of Attorney
A Revocation of Power of Attorney is a legal document signed by or on behalf of a person who granted a Power of Attorney (the Principal). It states that the principal is cancelling the powers that were given to another person (the Attorney) in an earlier Power of Attorney, so that the person appointed (the attorney) is no longer authorised to act on behalf of the principal.
The document provides written confirmation that the principal has revoked the Power of Attorney that was previously granted.
Our Revocation of Power of Attorney document allows you to, without confusion, legally revoke and cancel any previous Power of Attorney you may have granted for either personal, business, legal or medical matters. As per the legal requirements to ensure the revocation is valid and binding our document includes:
- the name of the principal (the name of the attorney is optional)
- the date of the power of attorney if not registered
- the registered number of the power of attorney if registered
- the date of the revocation and
- the words “hereby revoke”.
