This is a broadly worded legal document that grants one person broad powers to conclude transactions, enter into agreements and to generally act as an agent for and on behalf of another person (“the Principal“).

Where the Principal requires that the powers of his/her agent be constrained to a certain, or a more limited, set of circumstances, then we advise that you make use of the Special Power of Attorney. also available under Free Legal Documents.

This General Power of Attorney makes provision for the agent’s details and describes, in substantive detail, the mandate of the agent, i.e. what the agent is permitted to do on behalf of the principal.
