Powers of Attorney
Enduring Powers of Attorney are one of the most important documents you can execute. We advise all clients to sign Enduring Powers of Attorney.
These documents give another person the authority to:
- Deal with property matters in the event of your absence or inability to act
- Make decisions regarding your personal care and welfare in the event you lose capacity through accident or ill health
If you lose capacity, and there is no Enduring Power of Attorney in place, it can be a lengthy and costly process to have a Property Manager or Welfare Guardian appointed by the Court to act on your behalf . Where a Property Manager or Welfare Guardian is appointed, there are ongoing administration costs.
