Power of Attorney
A power of attorney is a formal agency appointment by which one party (the donor or principal) gives another person (the attorney or donee) the power to manage someone else’s affairs. Our power of attorney solicitors have a vast amount of legal knowledge and can help advice on all aspects of a power of attorney.
Managing someone else’s affairs can mean a number of things, including:
- Looking after their bank accounts, savings, investments or other financial affairs;
- Buying and selling property on their behalf;
- Claiming and spending welfare benefits on their behalf;
- Deciding where they live;
- Making decisions about their day-to-day personal care or health care
You might want to manage someone else’s affairs because they:
- Are ill or disabled, either temporarily or on a long-term basis;
- Are out of the country for a while;
- Are unable to make decisions for themselves, because of mental illness or other reasons.

The person appointed to act on behalf of the donor is called an attorney. Anyone can be an attorney, as long as:
- they are capable of making decisions;
- they are 18 or over
In some cases, someone who is bankrupt can’t be an attorney. If an attorney becomes bankrupt, power of attorney may be taken away.
