The Powers of Attorney Act 1996 provides for an instrument to be created called an “Enduring Power” which is intended by the person creating it to be effective during his or her subsequent mental incapacity. Prior to this Act the affairs of a person whose mental capacity was impaired could only be managed by the Wardship procedure i.e. a person being made a Ward of Court.
The Act has strict requirements with regard to the form of the Enduring Power, its registration and the protection of the parties relying on it and other ancillary matters. The Power of Attorney gives written instructions to the Attorney to do certain acts on behalf of the Donor.
