Oregon Power of Attorney Forms

Create a high quality document online now!

An Oregon Power of Attorney Form provides a way for one person to make another person his or her legal representative. This power will be accessible to the agent in the situations and/or circumstances defined by the principal. There are many different forms of POAs, each catering to one or more areas of the principal’s life. Some POAs are broad, in that they confer broad power over a person’s assets and property to another. Others are narrower and meant for certain discrete purposes, such as for healthcare, or for a limited real estate transaction. In all of these situations, it is very important the elected agent be trustworthy and reliable.
