Power Of Attorney

Power Of Attorney is a procedure that allows you to nominate one or more people to act on your behalf.  This can be by making decisions for you or signing documents on your behalf.

A Power Of Attorney is useful if you are in hospital or away for a while.  This document is not appropriate and will become invalid if you can no longer manage because of your mental ability.

A Power Of Attorney can be made by anyone who is mentally able to make one and can last for a period of time or cover only certain decisions.  A Power Of Attorney can be revoked at any time.

You cannot appoint an attorney who is under the age of 18 or if they are bankrupt.
