Get UK Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Thank you for your question.
If you wish for another person to act on your behalf while you are away you will have to give that person authority to do so by creating an ordinary power of attorney. It can be limited to a specific purpose and for a specific time.
A local solicitor will be able to arrange this for you relatively cheaply. Make sure you have all the relevant details - you should be very careful not to grant the attorney wider powers than you intended.
