Understanding power of attorney: Principals and agents

Principals and agents are the two groups of people who make up the basic power of attorney relationship. The principal is the person who creates the POA document -- or has it created by a professional. The agent is the person who is given power of attorney privileges by the document. The agent is sometimes referred to as the attorney-in-fact.
