An Enduring Power of Attorney relating to property can be cancelled or changed at any time provided the person giving the Power of Attorney understands what he or she is doing. If a person becomes sick or is incapacitated as a result of an accident then unless an Enduring Power of Attorney is in place the family and other close relatives cannot make important decisions. To obtain authority to make such decisions in the case of an accident or illness, it is necessary to make an application to the Court for a manager to be appointed to make decisions on financial matters and a welfare guardian on personal matters. Such applications can be expensive, stressful and take time. Any person over 18 or anyone who is married should give serious consideration to making Enduring Powers of Attorney. An Enduring Power of Attorney operates while the person giving it is alive. This is to be contrasted with a Will which only takes effect upon death. A Will does not come into effect if a person is mentally incapable. Indeed, in that situation the solicitors acting will not be able to divulge the terms of the Will to family members.

One for personal care and welfare and the other for property (your possessions and assets). Personal Care and Welfare An Enduring Power of Attorney for personal care and welfare can only come into effect if you become mentally incapable. Mentally incapable means the inability to understand the effect of any decisions which may be made relating to a person's personal care and welfare. An example of this is where a decision is required for a person with Alzheimer's disease who needs to be placed in care. Under an Enduring Power of Attorney for personal care and welfare only an individual person must be appointed. It is common for this person to be a member of the donor's family. Property An Enduring Power of Attorney relating to property contains several features. The person giving the Power of Attorney can choose when the Enduring Power of Attorney comes into effect. The options are: • Immediately the document is signed (if a person wishes someone else to manage his or her affairs from the date of signing); • at some specified time in the future; • or if the person giving the Power of Attorney becomes mentally incapable ("mentally incapable" in relation to property means that the person giving the Power of Attorney cannot manage his or her property affairs). In addition an Enduring Power of Attorney relating to property has the following further features: • The person giving the Power of Attorney can decide whether it covers all of his or her property or just specific assets, 4439004BV Gotcha: Rotarian Ian Juno shows off a dead rat that was caught as part of a pest control programme at Tate Reserve just out of Greytown. The Rotary Club of South Wairarapa has had a successful year assisting the Department of Conservation in controlling predators in Papawai Road reserve which has resulted in a resurgence of native birdlife in the area. Mr Juno was clearing trap lines on a recent Sunday morning.
