The Rhode Island real estate power of attorney form is a document that a property owner can use to supply their real estate agent with the ability to legally conduct business on their behalf. Generally speaking, this form is used to enable an agent to buy or sell real estate; however, the principal may choose to elect an individual to manage their property as well, which would have them making the appropriate repairs, hiring subcontractors, and generally acting as the landlord. This power of attorney document is not considered legally binding until it is executed by all parties involved and notarized.
