A Power of Attorney (POA) is a written authorisation allowing a person (known as the Agent or Attorney-in-Fact) to act on another’s behalf (known as the Principal or Granter) in matters of private, business or legal affairs.
An Agent entrusted with General Power of Attorney (GPA) is given allowance to make a range of personal and business decisions for the Principal Granter, whilst an Agent given Special Power of Attorney (SPA) is limited to specific pre-agreed duties.
Both the parties in the agreement must be legally competent to either instruct on or perform the numerous responsibilities that are bestowed upon the POA, whilst remaining within the constraints of the law in order for the agreement to remain valid, including the legal certification of the authorisation agreement upon the signature of both parties.
