Updated September 21, 2022

A Tennessee Real Estate Power of Attorney Form is a document that will allow a principal to assign an agent to care for their real property and/or any transactions pertaining to the real estate. This document is used when the principal will be unable to be present to handle their own business due to absence or illness. The designated agent should conduct any business as if the principal were available and able to do the business on their own, honoring the principal’s decisions with regard to their property. This document will not allow the agent to make any other decisions with regard to the principal.

This document should be notarized or contain the signatures of two witnesses. The principal should be aware that they may revoke the form at any time.
