What Is a Durable Power of Attorney?

A durable power of attorney is an exclusive type of power of attorney. A durable power of attorney is distinctive from a regular power of attorney and allows the agent to act on the principal’s behalf beyond the incapacity of the principal. A durable power of attorney may be immediate or springing. The immediate power of attorney starts immediately after the durable power of attorney has been executed. The springing durable power of attorney goes into effect after a specific event occurs. For instance, it can be the disability of the principal. Durable powers of attorney are often created to deal with property or health care decisions.
