Power of Attorney & Enduring Guardianship
Power of Attorney
What Is It?A Power of Attorney is a legal document which allows an individual or company to appoint another person to make decisions about your financial property and manage your financial affairs. In essence, this document gives another individual power to act in your name. It is important to note that even when you sign a Power of Attorney, you still retain all rights and powers to act on your own behalf to manage your financial affairs and carry out any transactions while you are able to do so.
Why Is It Necessary?A Power of Attorney can be very narrow and specific, or very broad and general. It is necessary for individuals to consider making a Power of Attorney so there is an individual who can buy, sell, transfer, or lease property in the case that you or your loved ones become incapacitated.
