Power of Attorney

Power of Attorney

Power of Attorney is someone you appoint to act on your behalf, giving them legal authority to deal with third parties such as banks in the event that you are either no longer able to do so yourself, or prefer that someone else handles your affairs. 

There are two different types of Power of Attorney; an Ordinary Power of Attorney and a Lasting Power of Attorney.

Ordinary Power of Attorney
Ordinary Power of Attorney gives someone the authority to look after your affairs for a period of time, perhaps to cover physical illness or a long period abroad.

Lasting Power of Attorney

Lasting Power of Attorney also gives someone the authority to look after your affairs for a period of time but needs to be registered.  They can look after your personal welfare in addition to your property and financial affairs and tend to be used by people who are at risk of losing their mental capacity.  (Lasting Power of Attorney has replaced Enduring Power of Attorney).
