Enduring Power of Attorney

An Enduring Power of Attorney is usually a legal document that appoints one person (the attorney) to act on behalf of another (the principal or donor) in relation to their property and financial affairs, often used when the donor expects to become incapacitated or unable to make decisions regarding those affairs.

For many people, a Power of Attorney is like an insurance policy. You probably won't need it, but you just might. It can be useful not only if you have health problems, but also if you are stuck in some location a long way from you bank accounts or legal papers. Like many legal arrangements, it relies not only upon the written word, it also relies upon trust. Select a particularly trustworthy friend or relative or associate to be your Attorney.

Better still, select two trustworthy friends to be your Attorneys, in case one is busy or incapable of acting at the exact time you need them the most.

Being an Attorney is a serious responsibility. Most States have legislation allowing the Principal or any third person with sufficient interest, to review the appointment of an Attorney, and the actions of an Attorney. Certain courts are empowered to cancel an Attorney's appointment, or to replace the Attorney. To be an Attorney, you don't need to be a lawyer, or an accountant, or any particular profession. But you do need to be aware of your general rights and resposibilities (which may be set out in the instrument of appointment) and you do need to keep a record of your dealings, including expenditures, with the Principal's property.
