An Enduring Power of Attorney is a legal document appointing an attorney to make personal/health and/or financial decisions for you. The person who makes an Enduring Power of Attorney is referred to as the “Principal.”
It is important to carefully consider who you appoint as your attorney. An attorney is required to act in the best interests of the principal. The duties and obligations of an attorney are contained in the Powers of Attorney Act 1998 (Qld). If an attorney is in breach of their duties, they may be subject to criminal liability, their removal as an attorney and payment of compensation.
