The Washington durable power of attorney form allows a person to choose someone else to handle any type of monetary matter with respect to their personal or business finances. The person selected, known as the “agent,” will have the unlimited power to sell real property (real estate), assets, and perform banking transactions on behalf of the principal. The form leaves the third (3rd) party harmless from being held liable as long as a valid power of attorney document is shown. The durable version also remains valid if the principal should become incapacitated.
