Easing the burden of decision making
Wouldn’t you want someone you trust to be responsible for your financial interests if you were incapable of looking after matters yourself? If you haven’t appointed a person to undertake that role, someone will be appointed for you.
An Enduring Power of Attorney is an important document that you should consider putting in place.
An Enduring Power of Attorney is a legal document whereby you appoint a person of your choice to manage your assets and financial affairs if you are unable to do so due to illness, an accident or absence.
If you were unable to make financial decisions due to a loss of capacity, it is important that a trusted family member or friend has the authority make financial and legal decisions on your behalf.
The decisions and duties an attorney may have include the paying of bills, signing of contracts, management of bank accounts and the sale, purchase or leasing of property.
