How would you cope if you became unable to manage your finances or to make decisions about your welfare because you were physically or mentally incapable? In those circumstances it would be good to know that someone else could make decisions on your behalf and in your interests either about where you live or what medical treatment you should receive or regarding the management of your financial matters.
By preparing the appropriate Lasting Power of Attorney you can appoint someone in advance who will deal with these matters for you, should you become ill, have an accident, or suffer from a loss of mental capacity.
Attorneys can carry out everyday tasks such as paying your bills, or more significant duties such as selling your house, deciding where you might live, or what medical treatment you might receive.
Support when you need it most
There are two types of Lasting Powers of Attorney, one for property and financial affairs, and one for health and welfare.
Lasting Powers of Attorney need to be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian before they can be used.
Our dedicated team are on hand to talk you through the process and ensure that you are fully aware of the advantages and implications of completing a Lasting Power of Attorney.
