Powers of attorney

Power of attorney describes the authority to act for another person where they are not capable of doing so themselves.

There are two main types of a power of attorney, namely an ordinary power of attorney and a lasting power of attorney (which replaced the enduring power of attorney).

Lasting power of attorney (and before October 2007 enduring power of attorney) is used where the person wants the power of attorney to continue even if they lose capacity to manage their affairs. An ordinary power of attorney is not capable of continuing if the person who granted the power becomes incapable.
