General power of attorney (Scotland)

Granting a general power of attorney allows someone else (the appointed attorney) the authority to manage your (the granter's) affairs for a set period of time, for example, whilst overseas for a couple of years. This particular general power of attorney is suitable for use in Scotland only. As a general power of attorney becomes invalid if you become mentally incapable, it is not suitable for managing the affairs of ailing relatives, unless they are of sound mind, and a continuing and/or welfare power of attorney should be used instead.
