Skilled Guidance For Powers Of Attorney
In Ontario, there are two types of power of attorney. A power of attorney for personal care grants the chosen person (attorney) the right to make decisions regarding matters relating to your health, nutrition, housing, and other related issues should you become incapable of handling them yourself.
A power of attorney for property grants the attorney the ability to make decisions regarding finances including paying bills, managing investments, collecting debts, and other issues.
It is important to note that there are limitations to powers of attorney. For instance, power of attorney becomes invalid once the principal dies and should not be confused with the role of an estate executor.
