Thank you for your question.
You need the proper form to create power of attorney. You can get this from the website of the Public Guardian in Scotland. You don't have to get a lawyer to do the work if you don't want to but that would be up to you.
A lawyer would be able to draft the document correctly. You might also be able to do so if you are experienced in this kind of work.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
