Kentucky Real Estate ONLY Power of Attorney Form

The Kentucky real estate only power of attorney form is a legal document that would be prepared by a Principal to provide written permission for an Agent, to do business on behalf of the Principal. The agent would have the ability to purchase, sell, refinance a mortgage or manage the Principal’s property in their absence or in the event the Principal would become ill. Regardless, the Agent must conduct business with the Principal’s property as if they are available to make their own decisions.

This document will not allow the Agent the ability to access or work with the Principal’s financial accounts, nor would the Agent have the ability to make medical decisions on behalf of the Principal. This document will require notarization upon completion. The Principal may certainly revoke this document at any time.
