On the next blank line, following the statement, beginning with “My additional special instructions,” will provide an area where you may report any provisions that should apply. For instance, if there is a co-agent this Agent must work with (or not work with), this fact should be documented. This area will also provide an area where the Principal may limit the amount of time the Agent has Authority by specifying a specific Start and/or Termination Date for this document or naming an event that would catalyze the Agent’s ability to act with Principal Authority with the Real Property.
