An Enduring Power of Attorney is an important document that you should consider putting in place. It 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.
We strongly recommend seeking the assistance of our estate lawyer who can provide expert guidance and draft essential documents such as the Power of Attorney and Advance Care Directive. These documents will ensure that you have designated someone you trust to handle your affairs and make important decisions on your behalf in the future. With the help of our estate lawyer, you can have peace of mind knowing that your interests and wishes will be protected and upheld when you are unable to make decisions for yourself.
