Our Wills and Estate Planning Team can help you with a Power of Attorney, for both your personal and business needs.
If you are concerned about what would happen to you if you lost capacity due to an injury or advanced age, or if you suffered an illness rendering you unable to make decisions regarding your well being, a Power of Attorney can deal with that. You can elect for your attorney to make decisions for you immediately or if you become incapacitated, but your Power of Attorney can ensure decisions made on your behalf are according to your wishes.
A Company Power of Attorney can also be used to authorise someone to act on behalf of your company and/or sign certain documents on your behalf. If you are the sole director of your company, a Company Power of Attorney will ensure someone can make decisions on behalf of your company in the event you become unable to do so.
We prepare Powers of Attorney for various Australian States and Territories. We can also assist your attorney to register your Power of Attorney at the relevant Land Titles Office, so your attorney can deal with your property. Similarly, we can also assist you to revoke your Power of Attorney.
