A Will is a legal document that clearly sets out your wishes for the distribution of your assets after your death. Having a clear, legally valid and up-to-date Will is the best way to help ensure that your assets are protected and distributed according to your wishes.
That is, over 18, not insolvent, not convicted/found guilty of a dishonesty offence, not a care worker, health provider or accommodation provider for the principal. Note: If convicted/found guilty of a dishonesty offence the attorney may still be appointed provided that the conviction/guilt has been disclosed to the principal and recorded in the power.
If the attorney is authorised to undertake dealings in land the power may need to be registered in other jurisdictions.
