How Do I Revoke (cancel) A Durable Power Of Attorney?

« Previous


You can revoke a Power of Attorney at any time for any reason. It doesn't matter whether the Power of Attorney is durable or not.

To revoke a power of attorney:

  • Notify the person you named to act as your agent. Preferably the notification should be in writing and delivered in a manner that assures the person receives it. For example, hand delivery, or overnight mail, return receipt requested.
  • Destroy all copies of the power of attorney.
  • Notify in writing any third parties with whom the agent may have done business or is about to do business.
  • If substantial assets are at stake, the American Bar Association recommends that you may also want to file a document called a "Revocation of Power of Attorney" in the public records where you live or own real estate, and maybe even in the local newspaper(s).
