An Enduring Power of Attorney (“EPA”) is a document where a person (called “the Donor”) gives another person or persons (called “the Donee/s”) the legal authority to make legal and financial decisions on their behalf. Your attorney therefore “stands in your shoes” and can do anything you could do, eg: sell and buy property, pay your accounts, attend to banking, manage investments, taxation and all other administrative matters. Legally, your attorney must act with diligence and in your best interests and keep full and proper records of the actions undertaken on your behalf.
An EPA does not extend to health and well-being decisions

Enduring Power of Attorney Instructions

If you die without a Will, your Estate does not automatically go to your spouse! Section 14 of the Administration Act 1903 provides a set formula for the distribution of your estate if you die without a Will. This formula will apply (unless contested which is costly) regardless of:

  • the quality / length of your relationship with this person;
  • the recipient’s personal circumstances and status; and
  • whether there are more deserving people who you would rather have nominated to benefit from your estate.

Please see our News/Information section for an information sheet or contact us for more information.
