Enduring Powers of Attorney

An Enduring Power of Attorney is a document that allows you to name a person to look after your financial, legal and property matters if you are incapacitated and unable to do so yourself.  A regular Power of Attorney automatically becomes null and void if you become incapacitated.  An Enduring Power of Attorney “endures” or has legal effect during your period of incapacity and allows your designated representative to look after your matters as you could do yourself.  You can designate your Enduring Power of Attorney to take effect only if you become incapacitated in the future, or you can have it take effect immediately, if circumstances warrant.  Having an Enduring Power of Attorney allows a person's family avoid having to go to Court to obtain a Trusteeship Order under the Dependent Adults Act, which can be a time consuming and expensive process.
