Provided you are not incapacitated, you can revoke a Power of Attorney at any time by sending a ‘notice of revocation of a Power of Attorney’ to your agent. This is a written legal notice signed by or on behalf of a person who granted a Power of Attorney stating that he or she is terminating the powers conferred on the agent under an earlier Power of Attorney.
There are a number of reasons, practical and personal, why someone might want to revoke a Power of Attorney. These may be that:
The revocation of a Power of Attorney is not effective against the agent or any third party who may rely on it until such time that notice of the revocation has been received by that party. As such, it is common practice to have a written notice evidencing the revocation rather than simply trying to revoke the authority orally. This written document can, in turn, be sent (by recorded delivery, if necessary) to all third parties who may rely on the Power of Attorney to put them on notice that your agent’s authority has been revoked.
