Power of Attorney

REASSURANCE FOR ONE OF LIFE’S MOST DIFFICULT CHOICES.

  • General Power of Attorney, where you appoint someone to manage your financial affairs whilst you have capacity but need some assistance (for example: going on holiday, needing an operation).
  • Lasting Power of Attorney for health and welfare, appointing someone you trust to make decisions for you relating to matters of personal welfare when you are no longer able to do so yourself.
  • Lasting Power of Attorney for property and financial affairs, choosing one or more trusted people to make decisions on your behalf in relation to property and finances . Unlike the Health and Welfare LPA this can be used once registered and not necessarily only after you have lost capacity.
  • Lasting Power of Attorney for Business, consider what would happen to your business if you lost capacity and could no longer manage your role. Who would you appoint in your place to assist you in continuing to run the business?

If you are losing mental or physical capacity and finding you can no longer make sound financial decisions for yourself or you fear that this may happen in the future, then you will need to consider passing responsibility over to a family member or a close friend. We know that setting up a power of attorney is a big step, so we give you all the information and support you need to embark on this process.  If for no other reason, consider that having these Lasting Powers of Attorneys will avoid the costs of a deputyship application.
