Property Enduring Power of Attorney
The point of a Property Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) is to allow you (the donor) to elect someone you trust, such as a family member or a trustee company, to make decisions on your behalf concerning your assets. This is to protect you if you were to become mentally incapable, and unable to make financial decisions such as paying bills, buying and selling assets, and taking care of bank accounts. A Property EPA can also come into effect while you are mentally capable.
