Create a high quality document online now!

Updated April 27, 2022

A Montana limited power of attorney form is a document that you can use to assign someone else the power to represent you in a specific transaction or for a designated period of time. This document will designate the individual you choose to represent you with the right to do so when you are not present. For example, if you anticipate closing on a piece of property, but are going to be out of the area when the closing is scheduled, you can sign a limited POA designating an agent to sign closing documents on your behalf. Only you can give someone the authority required to act on your behalf. It is important that you fill out the form correctly and have the requisite signatories.


Statutes – Uniform Power of Attorney Act

Authority (MCA 72-31-336) – An agent under a power of attorney may act on behalf of the principal and exercise limited (special) authority as expressly granted by the agreement.

Signing Requirements (MCA 72-31-305): The principal must have their signature acknowledged in the presence of a notary public.

How to Write

1 – Find The Buttons On This Page, Then Select One

The buttons below the image will allow you to access this form in one of three file formats. Use one of these buttons to access the Limited Power Form.

2 – Record The Principal And Attorney-in-Fact Identities

The first blank space, in the main paragraph, must have the Full Name of the Principal recorded. Make sure this is the Full Name of the Principal as it appears on his or her Identification papers.   Also, you will need to enter the Principal’s complete Address on the second blank space in this statement. This should be the Physical Location of the Principal’s Residence (i.e. do not use a P.O. Box).

The Attorney-in-Fact, the individual accepting the Principal Designation of Authority, must be named in this statement. Use the empty line after “hereby appoint,” to enter the Attorney-in-Fact’s Legal Full Name.

3 – The Limited Powers In This Form Must Be Precisely Defined

The Limited Powers the Principal has decided to assign to the Attorney-in-Fact should be clearly explained and documented in this form. To achieve this, provide a detailed description of Attorney-in-Fact Actions the Principal is appointing and approving through this form’s execution.

4 – The Principal’s Signature Date And Signature Must Be Supplied

Finally, the Principal’s Signature will serve to substantiate the Principal Authority being delivered. This will require the Date of the Principal’s Signature recorded by the Principal at the time of the Principal’s signing.

The Principal may enter the Date of Signature in the statement beginning “In Witness Whereof.” This statement will provide three blank spaces so the Calendar Day, Month, and Year of Signature of the Principal’s Signature Date may be recorded in an easily recognizable manner. The Principal will need to Sign his or her Name in the space immediately following this statement. Below the Witness Signature, each Witness who has viewed the Principal signing his or her name must verify the Principal Signing by signing one of the blank lines below the word “Witness” and documenting his or her Address using the corresponding blank lines (below the word “Address”).
