Powers of Attorney allow another person to take action and make decisions on behalf of someone else.
In Ireland, there are two types of Powers of Attorney:
General Power of Attorney – this gives someone a specific or a general power to act on somebody else’s behalf.
It’s normally used for a specific purpose or for a specific length of time. However, it no longer has effect if the person it’s being used for becomes so unwell that they can no longer make decisions. It’s commonly used for things like property transactions when a buyer or seller can’t complete the transaction in person.
Enduring Power of Attorney – this allows someone else to make decisions on your behalf if and when you become unable to make a decision – normally due to physical or mental illness.
