The NSW Department of Lands has prepared an issue paper in regards to the operation of the Powers of Attorney Act 2003. The issue paper was prepared so as to assist the department to review the Act to determine whether the policy objectives of the Act remain valid and whether the terms of the Act remain appropriate for securing those objectives, as required by section 57 of the Act.
The issues discussed in the paper are some of the known issues that have arisen during the operation of the Act. The department is keen to hear the public's views of the issues posed in the paper, and also any other issue in regards to powers of attorney.
