California residents, prepare a Uniform Statutory Power of Attorney with this easy-to-use template.
The form is in accordance with the Uniform Statutory Form Power of Attorney Act (California Probate Code Sections 4400-4465), as amended by Senate Bill 158.
This Power of Attorney takes effect immediately upon signing. You have the option to grant your attorney-in-fact the power to deal with a number of matters for you, including:
- your real estate property,
- banking and financial transactions,
- stocks and bonds,
- personal property,
- pension and employment benefits,
- tax and legal matters,
- your business affairs and operations.
This Power of Attorney does NOT give your attorney-in-fact the authority to make your health care or medical decisions. You will need to use a Health Care Power of Attorney
for that purpose.
The California Uniform Statutory Power of Attorney
template is available in MS Word format, and is easy to fill in and print. No need to buy additional copies - you and your spouse can each prepare a Power of Attorney with this form.
