A legal designation that grants a chosen individual the authority to act on behalf of another person is known as a power of attorney. A special power of attorney is a legal document that specifies the range of power granted by the principal to an agent, also referred to as "an attorney in fact." An agent is given the authority to act on behalf of the principal to make certain legal or financial choices under the special power of attorney. It is also known as Limited Powers of Attorney.
A power of attorney is a set of powers listed in a single document that enables a principal to act on behalf of a third party in the performance of legal or financial decisions. It is a type of contract that not only certifies the appointment of an agent but also outlines the kind and scope of the agent's power. The functions and duties of an agent are constrained by certain conditions. The obligations of the agent are set down in the contract between the two parties, both expressly and implicitly. Depending on the scope of the agreement, the agent may be subject to obligations beyond those specified in the contract.
There are certain things that a principal should consider before issuing a attorney with special powers, which are as follows:
The credentials of both the principal and the agent must be filled out when drafting a special power of attorney. The document's creators must precisely list the approved acts of transactions and the required deadlines. Additionally, the principal must show a legitimate form of identification with his or her picture and signature. The witnesses have all signed copies of the document and added their signatures.
It is appointed by the principal so that he can act on he behalf and take vigilant actions. One must consider a lot of things aforementioned so that any kinds of wrong does happen to the principal and his assets.

Unless the principal regains their capacity to make decisions for themselves and has the ability to withdraw the power of attorney, the power of attorney is often irrevocable once it is granted and does not expire until the principal passes away.
Unlike general power of attorney which gives the agent a wide range of decision-making power on behalf of the principal, special power of attorney limits the area of decision-making for the agent on behalf of the principal.
It cannot, at any moment delegate the duty to another Agent. After the Principal's death, the POA is not permitted to make any financial or legal decisions; instead, the Executor of the Estate will take over. After the Principal's passing, the POA is not permitted to transfer property or distribute inheritances
