POWER OF ATTORNEY FOR PROPERTY


Power of Attorney is a legal document that authorizes a designated person (an attorney) to act on your behalf. Appointing an attorney is a crucial step in effectively planning for the proper management of your financial and personal affairs. It allows you to decide who will be making all the financial and personal care decisions if you cannot make them yourself.

POWER OF ATTORNEY FOR PROPERTY allows you to appoint someone to manage your finances and make decisions about your property.  It allows the attorney to do on your behalf everything that you yourself can do with your property.   Among others, attorneys are able to sign documents on your behalf, pay your bills and even sell your house.  Your attorney will manage your property if you become incapacitated.  He or she might also act on your behalf during your absence or simply to spare you the inconvenience of doing it yourself.
