Power of Attorney

Hugh McGroddy provides a bespoke service in relation to the preparation and notarisation of Powers of Attorney.
A Power of Attorney is a legal document where one person "the Donor" gives authority or powers to another person "the Donee" to concludes contracts in the Donor's absence
In ordnance with Irish law, Hugh McGroddy offers two variations on the Power of Attorney.

Power Of Attorney:

A donee can be given a specific or generalised power. This power ceases as soon as the donor becomes mentally incapacitated.
A Power of Attorney can be designated or limited to a specific purpose like the sale or purchase of property or assists in the absence of the donor.
A Power of Attorney may also be general in nature and provide the donee with powers to do just about anything the donor could do for themselves.

This power must be given in writing but no other formalities are required. The donor must have the legal capacity to give the Power of Attorney, and it lasts until it is withdrawn by the donor.

Enduring Power of Attorney

The specifications for setting up an enduring power of attorney are much more complex.
An Enduring Power of Attorney is a legal document executed by a person called "the donor" appointing a certain person or persons called "Attorney" to make medical & financial decisions for benefit of the Donor in an event that it becomes mentally incapacitated.

There are strict formalities surrounding the creation of an Enduring Power of Attorney. An Enduring Power of Attorney will only come into effect if all of the necessary procedures have been followed correctly.
