An Agent is someone who is authorized to act for or in place of another and is in essence a representative. An Agent acts with varying levels of authority given to them by someone else. Appointing an Agent is a way to still be in control of the major decisions without being overburdened with day-to-day administration. An Agent for Estate Trustee appointment, also known as an Estate Agency and Attorney for Property appointments are very common.
