North Carolina Power of Attorney Law


You can make a power of attorney (POA) under Title 32A of the North Carolina General Statutes. By filling out this simple form, you can avoid major headaches and save much time and money involved in establishing a guardianship if an unfortunate accident, illness, or mental incompetency strikes you. You can also use this important tool to make life easier when it’s simply more convenient to have a matter handled by someone else. Whether you’re unavailable due to illness, being out of town, in the military, etc., or unable to care for yourself due to a catastrophic event, a power of attorney form is the easy way to take care of your affairs. You, as the principal, delegate the described authority to a named agent, also called the attorney-in-fact, to act in your place. You can grant your agent wide authority or only limited authority to handle specific matters, such as banking, a house or vehicle sale, or other. You have flexibility in creating the terms that fit your needs. Let’s take a look at some of the terms you should be familiar with:

  • Durable power of attorney – A durable POA will not be automatically cancelled if you become disabled or mentally incompetent after making it. North Carolina General Statutes require certain wording to be included in order to create a durable form. Your intent to have the form stay in effect after becoming incapacitated or mentally incompetent must be clearly stated. Without a durable form, it is typically necessary to petition the court to appoint a guardian if you suffer an accident or illness that prevents you from handling your own affairs. Creating a guardianship involves significant delay and expense, and can create problems such as foreclosure, bad credit, and loss of business, until the process is finalized. North Carolina General Statutes Section 32A-8


  • Registration – If you create a durable POA, it must be registered with the local register of deeds before your agent can legally take action on your behalf. You can state the place of registration in the form. If no place of registration is named, it must be registered in the office of the register of deeds of the county of your residence at the time of registration. If you live out of state or your residence is unknown at the time of registration, it can be registered in a North Carolina county where you own property or the county in which one or more of the attorneys-in-fact reside. North Carolina General Statutes Section 32A-9


  • Revocation – You can revoke your form at any time, as long as it’s done freely and knowingly. This should be done by signing a written registration form and giving a copy to your agent and those that your agent has been acting for you with. If your form was registered, the revocation of the form must also be registered at the same register of deeds and served on the agent. Your death will automatically cancel the form. North Carolina General Statutes Section 32A-13

    General and Statutory Power of AttorneyWhat is a General Power of Attorney?A General Power of Attorney is a legal document which gives the person you choose (the agent) the power to manage your assets and financial affairs while you are alive. The document must be signed by you (the principal) while you have the required legal capacity to give your agent clear and concise instructions. The appointment may be for a fixed period and can be revoked by you at any time providing you still have the legal capacity to do so. A power of attorney ceases when you die. The executor named in your will then takes over the responsibilities of your estate.

    Living Will and Health Care Power of AttorneyLiving Will and Health Care Power of AttorneyA Health Care Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows an individual to designate another person to make medical decisions for him or her when he or she cannot make decisions for himself or herself. In other words it names someone who stands in your shoes and tells the doctors what to do or what not do for you.

    A Living Will is a document that allows a person to explain in writing which medical treatment he or she does or does not want during a terminal illness. A terminal illness is a fatal illness that leads ultimately to death. A Living Will takes effect only when the patient is incapacitated and can no longer express his or her wishes. The will states which medical treatments may be used and which may not be used to die naturally and without the patient�s life being artificially prolonged by various medical procedures. Although the term Living Will may indicate that it is a Will, in reality, it is more similar to a Power of Attorney than a Will.
