A Pennsylvania limited power of attorney form allows a person to select someone else to carry out one or more specific business-related tasks for them. The principal can choose to have the document terminate upon completion of the task or upon a termination date set forth in the form. The attorney-in-fact must carry out all tasks described in the power of attorney to the best of their abilities. Aside from the determined end date (or completion of the task), a limited power of attorney becomes void upon the principal’s death or incapacitation. Even though this power of attorney is in effect for a limited time, the principal should appoint an attorney-in-fact who they know will represent them fairly and responsibly.
