I have an enduring power of attorney for my father. He has just passed away and I wondered if the EDA ceases on his death.

Family Law Answers : Hello and thank you for contacting Just Answer.
Family Law Answers : First, I am sorry for the loss of your father.
Family Law Answers : And to your question, yes a power of attorney terminates upon the principal's death. In your situation, your father is the principal so the power of attorney is no longer effective.
Family Law Answers : I hope that this answers your question; if so, please provide a positive rating. If not, please let me know how I can provide clarification. Thanks and I wish you the best here.
