The California real estate power of attorney form is a template with which individuals can name an attorney-in-fact to handle certain real estate matters. The creator of the document (principal) can choose to give their agent all powers relating to their current or future property holdings or they can grant them a specific task to complete within a certain time period. This power of attorney document can grant powers such as buying, selling and leasing property, deed and mortgage management, and refinancing and tax duties. Although the agreement will obstruct the agent from doing anything against the principal’s best interests, the principal would still be wise to appoint a trusted individual, preferably one who also has experience in real estate law and management. A real estate power of attorney may be revoked at any time by the principal.
