A power of attorney is a document that appoints a person (called an “attorney”), to act on behalf of another person who grants the power ( the “donor” ) during the donor’s lifetime. The purpose of a power of attorney is to provide proof of the attorney’s powers. It allows the attorney to sign any document or do anything which the donor can do legally, subject to any conditions or limitations stated in that document.
