An Ordinary Power of Attorney allows you to nominate one or more people to deal with your finances on your behalf.
The document can be general and cover every aspect of your affairs, or you can specify which matters your attorney can deal with.
You can end the arrangement at any time and the document automatically becomes invalid if you lose mental capacity.
You may wish to consider an Ordinary Power of Attorney if you -
- are going abroad for a period of time
- are going into hospital or are physically unable to manage your finances due to illness or disability
- would like someone else to deal with a particular financial matter, for example, selling your property
