Autorization to Sign Document: Where can I find one?

When you buy property in a company name, most parties involved will need a bit of documentation for that company such as your Articles of Incorporation and your Operating Agreement.  They are also going to ask for an Authorization to Sign form.

So while our Articles of Corporation are a document that came from the state when you registered with them, and your Operating Agreement is probably in some book somewhere with a corporate seal, that is if a professional helped you set up your company.  You should also have a few Resolutions in the book that says that so and so does this and so and so does that and quite possibly if a professional helped you set up an LLC to buy and sell houses, you may already have a “Resolution” authorizing someone to sign on behalf of the company.  If you don’t then you need to make one.

If you practice law in your company via way of Google, which you should not, you might find some of the examples below.
