/Enduring powers of attorney

An enduring power of attorney (EPOA) is a legal document that says who can make decisions and sign documents for you, in relation to your personal care and welfare or your property, if you can’t – because you have lost the mental capacity or physical ability to do so.  These documents are recommended for people of all ages, and are required by most retirement villages.  Having an EPOA in place could save your loved ones a lot of money and stress in the future in the event you do lose capacity.  The alternative is to have someone appointed by the High Court – which costs several thousands of dollars every few years, and the person appointed may not be who you would want.

The prices below indicate a range and base price you can expect to pay for standard documentation.  Please contact us any time to discuss your requirements.
