A general power of attorney for finance and property allows you to authorize someone you know and trust to manage and deal with the whole cross section of your legal, financial and property affairs on your behalf. The person you appoint will act as your agent and will have the same legal authority to deal with your affairs as you would. Your agent will continue to have this authority until you terminate his or her appointment or until you become incapacitated.
While the concept of appointing an agent under a power of attorney may seem remote to you, there are in fact a number of very convincing reasons why you might want to appoint someone else to look after your affairs.
For example, suppose that you are going to be out of the country for a lengthy period of time or that you are going to be recovering from an operation, injury or illness for a prolonged period. In each of these instances, you would not be in an ideal position to manage your affairs and your inability to manage your affairs could do more harm than good. Maybe you need someone to deal with repairs to a property you own, maybe you need to have someone run a business for you or maybe you simply need to have someone to deal with your bank accounts. In each case, you could appoint a close relative or friend – someone you trust – to deal with these matters on your behalf.
If you want to grant your agent more limited authority, you should consider a limited power of attorney for finance and property. With a limited power of attorney, you could for example confine your agent’s authority so say dealing with a specific bank account, property, or business. You can be as specific and restrictive as you like!
Our General Power of Attorney Kit contains all the information and ready-to-use lawyer prepared legal forms necessary to create a general power of attorney to cover almost any conceivable situation. It also contains all the documents and forms necessary to revoke your power of attorney. Simply follow the instructions and you can prepare your general power of attorney for finance and property quickly and easily.
