A PROPERTY EPOA

 

Property includes not only land and houses but also businesses, bank accounts, shares and all other possessions, i.e. everything you own. You can choose more than one attorney to exercise an EPOA for your property, and should probably choose to do so as this is a highly responsible and powerful role.

A PERSONAL CARE AND WELFARE EPOA

An EPOA for your personal care and welfare enables your attorney to make legal decisions about your personal care in the event of mental capacity.  For instance, your attorney can decide if you need to go into care, what home or hospital you will go to, what sort of medical treatment you should have, and so on. The attorney cannot make decisions relating to marriage or adoption of children, refuse medical treatment intended to save your life or prevent serious damage to your health, or consent to certain medical treatment (some brain surgery, medical experiments or electroconvulsive treatment).

You can only appoint one person to act as your attorney in relation to personal care and welfare at any time, but you can nominate a substitute to act if the first person is no longer able to.
