General Power of Attorney Tennessee Form – Adobe PDF
The Tennessee general power of attorney form is used to select a person who can handle financial acts on another’s behalf. This power of attorney is not “durable” and therefore will be void upon the incapacity of the principal. Individuals seeking a document which remains in effect when the principal is incapacitated should use the Durable Power of Attorney form in place of the general version available on this webpage.
Signing Requirements – No statutory signing requirement. The principal is advised to sign the document in the presence of a notary public or two (2) witnesses.

- Real Property and Lease Transactions;
- Personal Property Transactions;
- Banking and Financial Transactions;
- Estate Transactions;
- Contractual Agreements;
- Insurance Transactions;
- Medical Matters;
