If you are worried about losing the ability to manage your finances or welfare or if you are concerned about a family member or friend, you may want to consider making a Lasting Power of Attorney. A lasting power of attorney is a legal document that allows you to decide now who you want another person to make decisions for you if and when you are unable to make them for yourself.
The crucial thing is to set up an LPA while you are still mentally capable, well before you need it. If you become mentally incapacitated later in life and don’t have an LPA in place, your relatives can face long, distressing delays and increased expense in applying to the court to take control. And don’t assume that because you have set up an LPA, you have lost control. You can choose whether it can be used either before, or only when, you lose mental capacity.
We want people to view LPA’s as an important part of the planning for their families future.
For example, the order may have a restriction that the attorney can only operate their financial affairs in full once the donor has lost mental capacity, certified by an appropriate medical professional.
We can take instructions over the phone or in person and are happy to arrange a home appointment if necessary.
Lasting Power of Attorney (Health & Welfare or Property & Finances) £295.00 plus VAT
Registration £110.00 per document
