What is a General Power of Attorney for Property?

A General Power of Attorney for Property is a legal document that lets your attorney manage your finances and property only while you are mentally capable. If you become mentally incapable of managing your property, the General Power of Attorney for Property ends and your attorney can no longer act for you.

This type of Power of Attorney is usually used in business or for short-term temporary reasons. Since the laws about this were changed in 1996, most people who want to make a Power of Attorney for Property make a Continuing Power of Attorney for Property instead.
