Continuing power of attorney, i.e. anticipating the need for support
Why choose to make a continuing power of attorney?
You can anticipate your need for support and prepare a continuing power of attorney in case you later become unable to manage your affairs. The authorisation is recorded in a power of attorney, in which you can name the person who will have the right to manage your affairs. You can also state how your affairs may be managed and specify how the attorney's activities are to be supervised. It is therefore a more flexible and lighter way of organising the management of your affairs for the future than appointing a guardian.
