Ordinary Power of Attorney
This is a legal way of giving you the power to manage the financial affairs of someone else when it is difficult for that person to manage them for his or her self, perhaps because of a physical disability.
You will normally be a relative, friend, or solicitor appointed as their ‘attorney’. Nobody can assume power of attorney; it has to be donated willingly. The donor decides who to appoint as attorney and can cancel the arrangement at any time.
