Enduring Power of Attorney

An enduring power of attorney is a document that appoints someone to make decisions for you in the event that you are unable to make them for yourself.

It’s important for every adult, whatever their age, to consider creating an EPA.

There are two types of EPAs:

  • Property – covers your money, land and other assets. You may have more than one attorney for this EPA.
  • Personal care and welfare – covers your health, accommodation and associated care decisions, and comes into effect only if a medical professional or theFamily Court decides you have become ‘mentally incapable’. You may have only one attorney for this EPA
