2 – Define the Basic Information

In the first paragraph, you will need to report the Name of the Principal on the first blank space. On the next available space, report the Principal’s Street Address (Building/Street/Apt). Then, use the next two blank spaces to report the Principal’s City and State (in this order). After the phrase “…hereby appoint” enter the Name of the Agent being granted Authority in the available space. Then, in the area preceding the words “Street Address…,” fill in the Agent’s Building Number, Street, and Apartment Number. There will be two available spaces after this to report the Agent’s City and State.

3 – Delegate Authority

Next, the Arizona Real Estate Power of Attorney will require some definition as to what Powers exactly are being invested in the Agent by the Principal through this document. Such definitions may be provided via the Principal’s Initials. In Article I, “Assignment of Authority,” the Principal should read through the statements here then place his or her Initials on the blank space preceding the statements describing the Power he or she wishes to assign the Agent. If additional information is required in the paragraph the Principal chose, he or she should be prepared with the information it calls for.

If the Principal wishes to assign the Agent Authority in the “Sale of Real Estate,” he or she must initial the first statement then provide the Address and Legal Description of the Property in question on the first and second blank lines respectively. 

It the Principal wishes to assign the Agent Authority in the “Purchase of Real Estate,” then he or she must Initial the second statement. Then, a report on the Address and Legal Description must be supplied on the first and second blank lines respectively. If the Principal wishes to assign the Agent Authority in the “Management of Real Estate,” he or she must Initial the third statement then provide the Complete Address and Legal Description of the concerned Property on the blank lines provided. If the Principal wishes to assign the Agent Authority in the “Refinancing” of Real Estate, then he or she must initial the fourth statement then provide the Complete Address and Legal Description of the concerned Property on the blank lines provided.

4 – Define the Durability

Locate Article III. If the Principal has a specific time frame in mind in which the Agent may act on his or her behalf with Authority, then Choice “a” should be Initialed and checked by the Principal. This choice will require a definition to the Termination Date of this document. Use the blank spaces starting with the one preceding the word “…day” to report the Calendar Date, Month, and Year of the last day the Agent will possess such Authority (unless the Principal revokes it beforehand). 

If the Authority being assigned to the Agent is Non-Durable then the Principal should Initial and check the box in Choice “b.” Note: A Non-Durable Power of Attorney means the Authority the Agent will be granted shall terminate automatically upon the “…incapacity, or death, or revocation” of the Principal. If the Authority the Agent will have is Durable and will not terminate unless the Principal passes away or revokes this Authority, the Principal should Initial and check Choice “c”

5 – Solidifying this Agent’s Authority

In Article VI, “Revocation,” the Principal will revoke any other existing Powers of Authority by entering the current Date on the statement beginning with the statement “In witness whereof…”The Principal must then Sign his or her Name on the blank line labeled “Principal’s Signature” then, Print his or her Name on the blank line provided. The Agent, receiving Authority, must Sign his or her Name on the blank line labeled “Agent’s Signature,” then Print his or her Name on the blank line provided. Next will be two Witness Statements. Each will require the Printed Name of the Witness in the statement provided. Then below this statement, the Witness must Sign and Print his or her Name. Only a Notary Public may fill in the section labeled “Notary Acknowledgment.” Make sure this entity reports the State, County, Date, and People attending this Signing. The Notary must also provide his or her Name, Credentials and Commission Expiration Date. If possible, the Notary should provide his or her Seal below this. The last page will contain the “Acceptance by Agent” statement. The Agent receiving power must Sign and Print his or her Name in the appropriate spaces.
