Hi, I am here with a brief overview on executing Power of Attorney.
A Power of Attorney is a legal instrument which grants another person the authority to act as your legal representative, and to make binding legal and financial decisions on your behalf. It grants considerable power to a third party to act on your behalf, to sign your name to legal contracts.
You should give careful consideration to the person to whom you choose to grant these powers, and whether any limits should be imposed in the time the Power of Attorney will last, or in its scope. There are at a basic level, two types of Powers of Attorney, a general Power of Attorney is unlimited scope and duration, and permits the named individual to act as your legal representative in relation to financial matters, and so such time it is revoked The other type is a specific Power of Attorney, imposes limits upon the named representatives, and may restrict the scope of that person's powers.
When executing a Power of Attorney, you may choose to appoint more than one person to act on your behalf. This may require that the two people act jointly, both signing any instrument in order for it to be binding upon you, or you may permit them each to act individually. It's entirely your choice.
A Power of Attorney may become effective at the time it is signed, and the alternative, it may become effective at a future date. It's entirely up to you, but it's a very serious matter, and much thought should go into it. The choices are very important that you pick the right people. And that's a brief overview on executing Power of Attorney.
