Power of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows someone to act for you or make decisions on your behalf if you are no longer able to do so yourself. There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney; one for Personal Welfare and one for Property and Affairs. In order to be valid the lasting Power of Attorney must be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian.

Anyone who is aged 18 or older and has the mental ability to make decisions for him/herself can choose to give Power of Attorney to relatives or people that they trust.

The following websites have more detailed information about what a Power of Attorney is, how to set one up and what are the costs of doing so.
