Power of Attorney (General)

Power of Attorney (General)


This document enables a person (the principal) to grant another person (the attorney) the power to act on his behalf and in his name.

This general power allows the attorney to do on behalf do the donor “anything he can lawfully do” by an attorney.

If you only want to allow the attorney to do specific things, a Specific Power of Attorney should be used.

If you want to revoke the power granted by a power of attorney, a Revocation of Power of Attorney should be used.


  • Who is the attorney going to be?
  • Do you have a witness present in order to execute the agreement as a deed?
