Ordinary power of attorney
An ordinary power of attorney is usually bestowed upon a person when the donor is going abroad. Depending on the length of the donor’s absence, an ordinary power of attorney lasts for either a short or long term time period. The powers given can be either specific to certain duties or given in more general terms.
Lasting power of attorney
When a person is unable to make reasonable choices for themselves because of ill health, it is usual that a lasting power of attorney is enacted. A lasting power of attorney bestows authority on one person to assist and act on behalf of someone who is incapacitated. Many people appoint more than one power of attorney.
