Power of Attorney and Health Care – General – Florida
A limited power of attorney allows the principal to give only specific powers to the attorney-in-fact/agent. The limited power of attorney is used to allow the attorney-in-fact/agent to handle specific matters when the principal is unavailable or unable to do so. Florida Statutes Section 709.2110 states that a principal may revoke a power of attorney by expressing the revocation in a subsequently executed power of attorney or other writing signed by the principal. The principal may give notice of the revocation to an agent who has accepted authority under the revoked power of attorney. Therefore, if the principal wishes to revoke the power of attorney he/she should send a written notice of revocation to the acting attorney-in-fact/agent and to all third parties relying on the authority of the acting attorney-in-fact/agent.
