A
general
power of attorney
is
a
legal
document that allows you (the ’principal’)
to
nominate one or more
persons
(referred
to
as
an ‘attorney’) to act on your behalf. A
general
power of attorney
gives
the attorney the authority, if you
choose,
to
manage
your
legal
and
financial affairs,
including buying and
selling real
estate,
shares
and other
assets
for
you, operating your bank
accounts,
and
spending
money on your behalf.
The
power of attorney
ceases
if you
lose
your mental
capacity
after its
execution.
If you wish the power of attorney to
continue if you
lose
mental
capacity, use
the
Enduring
Power of Attorney
prescribed
form. An attorney under
general
power of attorney cannot
make decisions
about your
lifestyle
or health;
these decisions
can only be
made
by a
guardian
(whether an enduring
guardian
appointed by you or a
guardian
appointed by the
Civil and Administrative Tribunal
or the
Supreme
Court).
You
may set whatever
limitations or
conditions
on your attorney that you choose. An attorney must
always
act in your
best interest.
If your attorney
does
not
follow
your
directions,
or
does
not act in your
best interest,
you
should revoke
the
power of attorney. You or
someone
on your behalf
should
inform the attorney of the
revocation, preferably
in writing.
The
attorney must then
immediately cease
to act as your attorney. If
anyone else, such as
a bank,
has been advised
about
the power
of
attorney, that
person
or entity
should also
be informed of the revocation.
The
