Tennessee Power of Attorney Forms

Create a high quality document online now!

Tennessee Power of Attorney Forms can be employed by an individual (the principal) to appoint a person he or she trusts (the agent or attorney-in-fact) to act as a representative in a variety of matters. Some power of attorney documents allow for the appointment of the named attorney-in-fact to handle a broad range of powers, while others allow the principal to narrow the scope of the granted powers to the agent. In any case, some careful thought as to who should be chosen as the attorney-in-fact should be given because such an agent will be acting in whatever capacity the principal has decided upon. While this is cut and dry in most cases, an agent’s ability to act on behalf of the principal to the principal’s satisfaction will depend mainly on the reliability of that agent and the principal’s ability to determine and report his or her directives.
