General Powers of Attorney

A General Power of Attorney allows you to appoint someone else to act on your behalf usually in relation to a specific event or for a specific period, for example, to deal with one particular bank account whilst you are on holiday.

A General Power of Attorney is very quick and easy to set up and does not need to be formally registered anywhere in order to be valid.

However, despite their simplicity, it is essential that professional advice is taken on entering into a General Power of Attorney, as you may be giving away more authority than you realise and need to ensure that this is the best way of achieving your wishes without being too restrictive or too open!

A General Power of Attorney will automatically be revoked if you lose your mental capacity at any point in the future. For this reason, it is not always the best option to choose and other Powers of Attorney may suit your needs better.
