General power of attorney

A quick and easy way to get a solicitor-drafted General power of attorney personalised for you

About this service

Our 'General power of attorney' document enables you to temporarily grant someone else the authority to deal with your financial affairs. This may be useful if, for example, you are out of the country for a period of time and need someone to manage your affairs while you are away. Please note, however, that a 'General power of attorney' is not suitable if you need someone to manage your affairs after you have lost the mental capacity to act on your own behalf – instead, use our 'Lasting power of attorney (LPA) – Health and welfare' or 'Lasting power of attorney (LPA) – Property and financial affairs'.
