About this document

When you grant someone a Power of Attorney, you are giving that person or people the power to sign documents for you personally and enter into binding agreements on your behalf. You can give your attorney a general power to act in relation to all your property matters, or you can give a specific power relating to only a certain aspect of your property.

A Deed of Delegation allows the person or people you appoint as attorney to act on your behalf in your role as a trustee (of a trust) or executor (of an estate). You can give a general power to act on your behalf as trustee or executor, or you can limit the power you can limit the power you are giving your attorney to be in relation to a particular aspect of the role as trustee or executor.

When will the Power or Attorney / Deed of Delegation come to an end and no longer be valid?

  • When you revoke the Power of Attorney / Deed of Delegation in writing.
