Enduring Power of Attorney - Property

Allows you to appoint someone to make decisions on your behalf about your property affairs

by Nolans Lawyers

About this document

Your EPA in relation to property authorises the attorney that you, the donor, have appointed to make decisions on your behalf about your property affairs, particularly when you cannot do so for yourself because you have become mentally incapable. Your attorney can act for you while you are mentally capable if you authorise them to do so. You can appoint more than one attorney. You can also appoint a successor attorney to be your attorney if the previous attorney’s appointment ends. You can appoint more than one successor attorney.

Our price includes a one hour consultation.

What you need to know before you start the interview

  • Who you want your attorney or attorneys to be. Your attorney can be anyone you trust to understand and respect your wishes and feelings and who is able to manage your property, provided they are aged 20 or older, not bankrupt, and not mentally incapable themselves. This can be a friend or family member, a work colleague, or a professional person, for example, a lawyer or an accountant. An attorney for property can also be a trustee corporation. Make sure you have talked to your chosen attorney/s and have their agreement before you start.
  • Your EPA will not be valid until signed by all parties. This includes you and your attorney and an authorised witness.
  • You will need to have decided whether your attorney will look after all your property or only specific things e.g. just your bank accounts and investments.
  • Any special conditions you want your attorney to follow.
  • Whether you want your attorney to consult with anyone over decisions if so, you will need to know who these people are.
