The West Virginia limited power of attorney form allows a resident to choose someone else to handle a specific financial activity or decision on their behalf. This restricted appointment may be anything as serious as handling a real estate transaction, more commonly a closing, to simple tasks such as paying bills. After the designated activities are complete, the representative’s authority will be void and the power of attorney terminated. The form is not durable which means it does not stay valid if the person being represented can no longer think for themselves.
