Enduring Power of Attorney
Guide to prescribed forms of the Enduring Power of Attorney and downloading the forms
For an EPA to have legal effect, it must be made out in the “prescribed form”. “Prescribed form” means the Form(s) set out in the Schedules to the Enduring Powers of Attorney (Prescribed Form) Regulation (Cap.501A of the Laws of Hong Kong).
- Schedule 1 of the Enduring Powers of Attorney (Prescribed Form) Regulation contains Form 1, which is to be used when the donor intends to appoint only one attorney.
- Schedule 2 contains Form 2, which is to be used when the donor intends to appoint more than one attorney.
***Note: Please read the section “Information you must read” in the form carefully and thoroughly before you complete the form.
