A Specific Power of Attorney is a powerful legal document which allows a person (known as the Donor) to give another person (or persons) (known as the Attorney) the limited power to make decisions with regard to their financial, legal and/or personal affairs.

A Specific Power of Attorney is usually created for a set period of time in cases where the Donor is going abroad or is unable to act for some other reason and wishes someone else to have the authority to act on his or her behalf for a particular purpose.

A Specific Power of Attorney will usually end either at a specified time or upon the request of the Donor at any time using a Deed of Revocation and will automatically be revoked if the Donor loses mental capacity. There is no requirement for a Specific Power of Attorney to be registered.

Note that the Attorney’s powers under the Specific Power of Attorney are limited to the "specific" thing you want the Attorney to deal with (e.g. acting on your behalf in relation to a problem you are having with your council tax or simply ending a mobile phone contract). Sometimes this form is also known as a Limited Power of Attorney. This is to be compared with a General Power of Attorney which gives the Attorney power to deal with all the Donor’s affairs as he sees fit.

This Specific Power of Attorney form has been created by UK lawyers for use in England and Wales.
This is the content of the form and is provided for your convenience.

Information
SPECIFIC POWER OF ATTORNEY

A Specific Power of Attorney is a very powerful legal document.

It is a legal document that allows a person (known as the Donor) to give another person (or persons) (known as the Attorney) the power to take decisions with regard to specific financial and/or personal affairs of the Donor.

A Specific Power of Attorney is usually created for a set period of time in cases where the Donor is going abroad or is unable to act for some other reason and wishes someone else to have the authority to act on his or her behalf.

A Specific Power of Attorney will usually end either at a specified time or upon the request of the Donor at any time using a Deed of Revocation and will automatically be revoked if the Donor loses mental capacity. There is no requirement for an Ordinary Power of Attorney to be registered.

This Power of Attorney has been drafted to allow you to limit the Attorneys discretion to deal with your affairs as you see fit. For example you could state that the Attorneys powers are limited to dealing on your behalf in relation to a dispute you are having with the Council. Or quite simply to sign a specific document on your behalf (e.g. a mobile phone contract). The point is the Attorneys powers are limited. This is to be compared with our General Power of Attorney which gives the Attorney power to deal with all the Donors affairs as he sees fit.

The Power of Attorney is really self explanatory. You will need to enter the full names and addresses of the Donor and the Attorney where indicated.

You will also need to insert details of what powers the Attorney has to deal with your affairs. Please try and be as detailed as possible.

Finally please ensure that you insert the number of months (or a specific date if you want) under which the authority of the Attorney under the power will cease.



In the event the Donor wishes for the power to cease before this end date then use the Deed of Revocation document to revoke the Power. It is important to note that when using a Deed of Revocation it is necessary to inform the Attorney(s) of the revocation as the Attorney's authority does not cease until he or she receives notice of the revocation. A copy of the Deed of Revocation should be sent to each Attorney. Please look at our website to purchase the Deed of Revocation.



The Power must be signed by the Donor and witnessed by an independent third party (ie not the person who will be the Attorney).
