A Power of Attorney is a legal document that grants a person or organization (your "agent") the authority to manage your affairs if you are unable to do so. However, it is important to note that Florida law requires the Power of Attorney be effective from the moment it is signed. Whether it’s handling business transactions, managing real estate investments, or simply paying your bills, a Power of Attorney is an essential component of a comprehensive estate plan for any proactive business owner or property investor.
