Are there rules that an attorney must follow?

There may be rules to follow in the document itself. If not explicitly set out, a person appointed as an attorney under a power of attorney will have what are called “fiduciary” responsibilities to the person appointing them. The attorney appointed is also governed by rules set out in the Power of Attorney Act in BC. This legislation was recently updated so anyone appointed should carefully review the new legislation to ensure what they are doing complies with any changes.
