Revocation of Power of Attorney

Subject to the cases of irrevocable authority, a power of attorney can be terminated in the following manner
  1. By an agreement by the parties
  2. By a revocation by the principle on notice
  3. By the agents renunciation of the authority
  4. By death of a party
The authority cannot be revoked after the authority has been partly exercised, so far as regards such act or obligations as arise from facts already done.

The principal should give reasonable notice to the agent before termination of agency and if the agent is not aware about the termination and he does any act in pursuance of the power of attorney, the act will not be invalidated.

Where the principal authorized the attorney to admit execution of a document, which was revoked by him before registration of the document, but revocation was not known to the attorney or to the registering officer. It was held that the document was not invalidated, as far as the grantee was concerned and was binding on the grantor, although it was registered after the revocation of his authority.

The revocation need not necessarily be made by a formal instrument. It is possible to revoke a deed by word of mouth or the principal may intervene in the course of negotiation but until some such action is taken by the principal, the agent is justified in assuming that the agency continues. But not all powers-of-attorney or agency are revocable unless certain conditions are fulfilled.
