I delegated a family...

I delegated a family member POA to manage a Real Estate in 2016. I need to revoke his authority but he will not receive the revocation paper.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Florida...Im wondering if I can record the revocation at the court house so he cannot manage of try to sell the real estate which belongs to me

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not as far as I can tell. I have the revocation signed and notarized but he will not sign or return his copy. How can I remove his authority

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No just need to nullify his authority

Send the revocation via certified and regular mail.

Also send copies of the revocation to the bank and to any other person or entity that is involved with the property.

Record the revocation with the county recorder.

All those actions will render the POA terminated.

ok thanks I have tried the certified mail, If I only record the revocation with the county recorder will that nullify it. there is no 3rd party since the real estate is paid for . So Ican easily do 1 of the 3 you listed and record the document

Yes, filing with the recorder will provide public notice of the revocation.
