The donee is temporarily prevented from carrying out their duties
As donee you may also sometimes be otherwise prevented from representing the donor. These temporary reasons include illness or a long absence abroad.
If a deputy donee has been appointed in the power of attorney, the person in question can then apply for the confirmation of the continuous power of attorney for their part. Once the authority has confirmed the deputy donee’s power of attorney, the donee is eligible to represent the donor for the period the actual donee is prevented from doing so.
This is what to do
The deputy donee completes the application for the confirmation of power of attorney on the Digital and Population Data Services Agency website and submits it to the agency.
A guardian appointed by the Digital and Population Data Services Agency
If a deputy donee is not appointed in the power of attorney, you can apply to the Digital and Population Data Services Agency for the appointment of a guardian for the duties of the donee. A public guardian or a private person, who has given their consent to taking on the duties and is both suitable to act as guardian, can be appointed guardian. The guardian must always apply for the permission of the guardianship authority for legal actions listed in section 34 of the Guardianship Services Act.
