A Power of Attorney is a legal document which enables you to appoint one or more persons to act and make decisions on your behalf in relation to your assets (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
Powers of Attorney are relevant to all people regardless of age and health.
When may you need to engage a Powers of Attorney Solicitor?
- the onset of illness
- you may be out of the country for prolonged periods on business
- you may be housebound
- in care and require assistance attending to your affairs.
