The Missouri real estate power of attorney allows an agent to act on behalf of a principal and handle their real estate transactions. The agent is typically permitted to sell, purchase, lease, and manage the principal’s real property, though the extent of their authority may be defined specifically in the power of attorney. Assigning such legal power ensures that the principal’s property is managed according to their preferences regardless of whether they are physically present. Once an agent has been chosen, the document must be signed and acknowledged before a notary public before it’s considered valid.
