QLD Enduring Power of Attorney

The Queensland approved forms for enduring powers of attorney are:

1️⃣ The Short Form (Form 2); and

2️⃣ The Long Form (Form 3).

The Short Form is used by a principal to appoint the same persons as the attorneys for both personal/health matters and for financial matters.

The Short Form can be used for:

➲ Separate appointment of attorneys for personal/health matters only;

➲ Separate appointment of attorneys for financial matters only; or

➲ Concurrent appointment of attorneys for both personal/health matters and financial matters (where the same persons are appointed as attorneys).

The Long Form is only used by a principal to appoint different persons as attorneys respectively for personal/health matters and for financial matters respectively.

The Long Form can be used only for concurrent appointment of different attorneys for personal/health matters and financial matters.

In Queensland, the legislation governing the creation of enduring powers of attorney is the Powers of Attorney Act 1998 (QLD).
