 Power of attorney

This range of New Zealand power of attorney documents allow you to delegate authority to someone else to act on your behalf in various situations.

A power of attorney is an authority that you give someone to handle your affairs. The attorney has a duty to act in your best interests and take prudent care in managing your business affairs. There are two types of power of attorney:

  • Ordinary power of attorney

An ordinary power of attorney is valid only if you, the person giving the authority, have the capacity to deal with the matters yourself. The power therefore ceases if you become mentally incapable.This kind of power will commonly be given if, for example, you are planning a trip overseas.

  • Enduring power of attorney

By contrast, an enduring power of attorney continues to be valid even if you become mentally incapable. Therefore if you lose capacity, the attorney can still manage your affairs. An enduring power will usually be given when people are concerned about who will look after their affairs if they become unable to do so. Further reading  - How to give a power of attorney within New Zealand
