General Powers of Attorney

You can make a general power of attorney to appoint someone you trust to manage your property and financial affairs for as long as you wish. Unfortunately, such a power will not remain valid should you lose your mental capacity. These powers are therefore, usually more appropriate for someone who wishes to appoint an attorney to act for a limited time or to sell a certain asset, for example a house.

Powers of Attorney which are to be used abroad often require notarisation.  For more information please see our Notary Public section.
