This form follows the format of the enduring power of attorney form prescribed by the Government of Western Australia.
The enduring power of attorney is not cancelled if the principal loses capacity.
The enduring power of attorney can only be used to appoint attorneys as decision makers for financial matters: a separate enduring power of guardianship is required for appointing decision makers for personal matters.
1️⃣ The law of Western Australia restricts the principal to appointing a maximum of up to two eligible attorneys and up to two eligible substitute attorneys;
2️⃣ This form restricts the ability to appoint substitute attorneys so that three attorneys can never be accidentally concurrently authorised;
3️⃣ Can specify when the substitute attorney’s authority begins;
4️⃣ The principal can specify conditions and limitations on the attorneys’ authority;
5️⃣ Details for prescribed witnesses can be inserted in the form if known; and
6️⃣ Choose when the power to make decisions starts – i.e.: immediately; or only when a declaration has been made by the State Administrative Tribunal.
