NEW POWERS OF ATTORNEYS

Posted by webmaster in Uncategorized | 0 comments

From 1 September 2015 new law applies to Financial and Personal Powers of Attorneys.  There is no longer the need for a separate Power of Attorney Guardianship.  You can now appoint an attorney to make financial and lifestyle choices on your behalf in one document.  There are a number of new requirements such as:

  • Restrictions regarding carers;
  • Disclosure regarding convictions for acts of dishonesty;
  • New Acceptance Statements;
  • Witnessing of Acceptance Statements.

Seek legal advice to ensure compliance with the new requirements.
