A Power of Attorney is a document that allows you, in some capacity, to appoint another person to assist you. It empowers the individual and gives them a legal role instead of you.
Three separate forms of Power of Attorney, General, Lasting for Finance, and Lasting for Health and Welfare exist in England.You can get additional information at San Marcos Living Trusts.
A General Power of Attorney is for persons who maintain mental ability in a nutshell, meaning you still have your mental skills, but are incapacitated by other means, such as traveling overseas or being in hospital for a long period of time. It is a very versatile document that can be drawn up to cover most eventualities, the General Power of Attorney may allow another person to handle your finances if you are unable or to manage your company.
When you lose your mental ability, either by dementia, accident or injury, you can use a Lasting Power of Attorney, either for Finance or Health and Welfare. When you are no longer able to make decisions, it helps your nominated lawyers to handle your affairs for you.
The Enduring Power for Health and Welfare will rely on this report.
In short, in a Nutshell
The financial power is different from this text, since it focuses on the well-being of the donor, the individual who generated the power. The nominated attorney has a great deal of responsibility, so you must make sure you appoint someone you trust and who can make these kinds of decisions on your behalf.
