A Power of Attorney provides peace of mind when you are unable to handle your own affairs

Power of Attorney Lawyers – Adelaide


A Power of Attorney is a legal instrument that grants peace of mind by empowering trusted individuals to manage your legal and financial affairs when circumstances prevent you from doing so.

At Bambrick Legal, our commitment is to assist you in securing your future and safeguarding your assets, particularly in unforeseen circumstances.


What is a Power of Attorney?


A Power of Attorney grants authority to chosen individuals, such as family members or friends, to handle specific legal and financial matters on your behalf.

This includes:

  • Manage and access your bank accounts, shares and investments
  • Pay your bills
  • Manage property (selling or buying), or
  • Signing most legal documents on your behalf.

It is crucial to note that a general Power of Attorney is valid only when you have the capacity to make decisions.


What is an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPOA)?


Unlike a general Power of Attorney, an EPOA remains valid even if you lose capacity.

This enduring nature makes it a valuable tool for safeguarding your future and protecting your assets when you may need assistance the most.


How a Power of Attorney Works


Once signed, a Power of Attorney becomes immediately valid, granting authority to your appointed individuals.

Their authority to act on your behalf depends on any conditions you specify in the document.

It’s essential to understand the responsibilities and duties that come with being an appointed attorney.


Duties of an Appointed Attorney


Appointed attorneys must keep full and proper records of their actions and act in the best interests of the person they represent.

Trust is paramount in this role and an appointed attorney does not have any entitlement to commission from their duties.

If you appoint more than one person, you can direct your appointed attorneys to make decisions together or separately.

Without an appointed EPOA, an interested party may apply for administration rights over your assets if you lose capacity.


Revoking a Power of Attorney


There are several ways to revoke a Power of Attorney:

  • Issuing a Revocation (writing to the effect that you revoke it)
  • At the expiry date (if one is specified within the document)
  • Loss of capacity
  • Physical destruction of the document, or
  • Upon death.

Once accepted, your attorney is not able to renounce or revoke the power given to them without a Court Order.


Updating Your Enduring Power of Attorney


You should consider reviewing your EPOA regularly and changing your EPOA in certain circumstances including if:

  • You no longer trust a person to whom you gave Power of Attorney
  • You wish to give Power of Attorney to another person
  • A person to whom you gave Power of Attorney no longer has ‘capacity’ or has passed away
  • You wish to change or add restrictions, or
  • You wish to change how the persons to whom you gave Power of Attorney are required to act (that is, ‘jointly’ or ‘jointly and severally’) if you have two or more people.
