Do Deputies Need A Lasting Power Of Attorney?


No. A Power of Attorney enables a person to act on your behalf. It has to be given while the donor (the person who wants you to act) is fully cognative (that is, the person granting the power of attorney must be of sound mind). If a deputy is required that means the person is mentally incapable and so an ordinary power of attorney is invalid.
