Instructions for Executing Your Revocation
Before signing your Revocation of Power of Attorney, ensure that you have read it and understand it.To be valid, you must sign the document using your normal check signing signature. The signing must occur in the presence of your notary or witnesses.After you have signed your document in front of your notary or witnesses, your notary or witnesses must sign the document in your presence.Remember that your witnesses cannot be your spouse, partner, child, your attorney-in-fact or alternate attorney-in-fact, or the spouse of your attorney-in-fact or alternate attorney-in-fact. Some jurisdictions disallow witnesses that are mentioned in your will, either as beneficiary or executor/executrix. You should generally avoid having witnesses that have any financial relationship with you. The witnesses must be of legal age in your jurisdiction and they must be mentally capable.
Effecting Your Revocation
To ensure that your revocation is effective, you must give actual notice of your revocation. This means that the written revocation must be received by the attorney-in-fact and any third party affected by the power of attorney (e.g. financial institutions, land registries, and individuals). It is therefore insufficient to simply mail out your revocation and assume it has been received. You must be certain that all relevant parties have actually received the revocation - double-registered mail or personal delivery may be the best option. Furthermore, if your power of attorney gave authority over real estate, it is best to register your revocation with a legal description of the property in the County Clerk's Office or deed registry where the land is located. Ask your attorney-in-fact to return all of his/her copies of the power of attorney. Mark the words "Revoked" on each copy to ensure that they cannot be used again.
