If you need another person to act for you in legal and financial matters, then you can appoint that person as your “attorney”, for example, you may be going overseas or may be physically disabled. The attorney can do anything on your behalf in legal and financial matters in relation to the sale or purchase of your property. This appointment ends automatically if you die but can continue after you have lost mental capacity – such a grant is called a power of attorney.
Westwood Conveyancing are authorised to provide a power of attorney only if the matter is in conjunction with a conveyance.
