Power of Attorney

power of attorneyA Power of Attorney is a legal document that gives one or more people the power to act on your behalf in financial or legal matters and comes into effect depending on particular circumstances (such as if you will be overseas or in hospital).

An enduring power of attorney covers financial and legal matters in the event you become incapacitated (such as when suffering from a mental illness or in a coma) and continues to have effect whilst ever you remain so incapacitated.

The appointment of either form of Power of Attorney must be accepted by the nominated attorney or it is of no effect.

The Power of Attorney ceases to have any effect upon your death and/or subject to the terms you set for its coming into force and expiring.

We charge a fixed fee of $176.00 (inclusive of GST) to prepare a Power of Attorney and they can be drafted at the time of your initial consultation.
