Updated September 21, 2022

A Washington Real Estate Power of Attorney Form supplies the hardcopy proof an agent needs when representing a principal property owner. Usually, such paperwork will be filled out and signed by the principal. It may be filled out by a preparer as well. However, only the principal property owner can sign and execute this document. This is because the agent will have the authority to act in the principal’s name in the matters the principal defines here. The subject matter will focus on real property transactions. Thus the agent can be given the principal authority to manage real property and conduct certain transactions, as well as other transactions requiring principal attention.

In addition to the principal signature, this document requires notarization or attestation from two witnesses. The Principal can at any time revoke the powers he or she is delivering in this document whenever desired.
