The donee does not have the right to act
The donee does not have the right to act and represent the donor in matters that are not stipulated in the power of attorney.
Special provisions apply to immovable property. Immovable property include for example buildings on one’s own property and forest holdings. Immovable property does not include housing shares and leased buildings.
As donee, you cannot
- pledge, or
- immovable property,
unless otherwise stipulated in the power of attorney.
If there is not such stipulation, the donor can be appointed a guardian to manage these matters.
Please note that as donee, you do not have the right to donate the donor’s property unless otherwise stipulated in the power of attorney. It is also not possible to appoint a guardian for the purpose of giving a gift.
This is what to do
Fill in the application for appointing a guardian to the duties of a donee on the Digital and Population Data Services Agency’s website and submit it to the Agency.
Attach the consent of the private person to the role of guardian to the application. If you are proposing a public guardian for the task of guardian, the consent of a private person to the task of guardian need not be attached.
