A West Virginia real estate power of attorney enables an agent to act on behalf of a homeowner or buyer concerning the sale and purchase of property located in West Virginia. Without a signed and notarized power of attorney, the agent will not be able to sign any legal documents or otherwise communicate the wishes of the individual they represent. Once signed, however, the power of attorney will grant sufficient authority to close a real estate transaction or maintain a purchased property until the end of the term (length should be defined within the power of attorney document).
Laws – § 39B-2-104
