— There are two kinds of EPA:
Establishing an EPA
An EPA specific to your property
Your attorney will be responsible for managing any transaction that involves your property including finances. This may include all household expenses and maintenance, engaging services and tradespeople, perhaps buying or selling property, overseeing relocation, paying bills and so on. The attorney that you have appointed can act for you under the EPA at any time. We can however, act as your property attorney either alone or jointly with others.
An EPA in relation to your personal care and welfare
Your attorney will be responsible for, making decisions about your personal matters. This can include your medical care or deciding which rest home you are placed in. This EPA only comes into force when you are deemed unable to make these decisions for yourself. This type of EPA can only be held by a person and we can help you to decide who the best person is.
While you cannot appoint Trustees Executors as your attorney for personal care and welfare, we can still help you with advice on choosing an appropriate person.
