Enduring Power of Attorney ("EPA")

An EPA allows a person to act for another person in respect of financial and property matters. An EPA survives your mental incapacity, so that if you have an accident and you are left in a coma, or some other event causes you to be mentally incapable of handling your financial affairs, your attorney can continue to act on your behalf.

We recommend that your EPA should be effective immediately, to avoid having to get a declaration of mental incapacity from the State Administrative Tribunal. However, this means your attorney can act on your behalf immediately and so you must have absolute trust in your attorney. If you wish to learn more about EPAs, download the Enduring Power of Attorney Guide and see the Public Advocate's website.

The guide includes a form which you can complete yourself. However, if you would like us to assist, please contact us or download the EPA instruction sheet from this page, complete it and send it to us and we will prepare an EPA for you after giving you a quote.
