Power of Attorney is a legal document which allows you to appoint one or more persons known as Attorneys to act and make decisions on your behalf in relation to your property and finances or your health and welfare at a time when you may no longer be capable of acting or making those decisions yourself.
There are different types of Power of Attorney:
- Lasting Power of Attorney for Property and Financial Affairs
- Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare
- Ordinary Power of Attorney
- Enduring Power of Attorney
