Mandate (also called a “mandate” or “ordinary mandate”)
This mandate allows you to designate one or more persons to act on your behalf and in your name, but when you’re still capable of doing so.
For example, you may sign a power of attorney naming your brother responsible to collect and deposit into your account the rents of your income property simply because it is more convenient for you and not because you are incapable of doing so.
The power of attorney ceases to be valid from the time the court declares you unfit. Therefore, only a mandate in anticipation of incapacity may be useful for approval.
