Enduring Powers of Attorney
An Enduring Power of Attorney is a legal document executed while you are mentally competent in which you give another person the power to act on your behalf, your “Attorney”. This document only becomes effective once you are mentally incapable (decided by your doctor/consultant). The document must be registered in the High Court for it to take effect. It may be sensible to execute an Enduring Power of Attorney in conjunction with your Will.
Putting an Enduring Power of Attorney in place may be a sensible precaution, as it enables you to:
- appoint a person or persons of your own choosing to act on your behalf,
- it can reduce the stress of your family at an already difficult time,
- it can prevent family disputes in relation to assets and care decisions,
- it is a far cheaper and straightforward than the alternative to an Enduring Power of Attorney (a Ward of Court Application).
The Enduring Power of Attorney can allow your Attorney to make important decisions in your place, for example, what to do with your house or investment properties, where you will live and who with, your diet and your future care. The level of power given to your Attorney is your decision.
