If you intend the Attorney's power to operate in more than one jurisdiction, you should probably create a separate document for each jurisdiction.What is a Power of Attorney?If you don’t have the mental capacity to make decisions for yourself, the Mental Capacity Act 2005 allows you to create a Power of Attorney which is a document in which one person (the principal) appoints another person (the Attorney) to act for him or her. There are many reasons why you might want to appoint someone else to look after your affairs.

For example, if you are going to be out of the country for a lengthy period of time, you might want someone to do your banking while you are gone. If you are approaching old age, you may want to give a Power of Attorney to a person you trust so that he or she can manage your property for you.
