A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a way of giving someone you trust, your attorney, the legal authority to make decisions on your behalf if you lose mental capacity or if you are no longer able to carry out desired actions such as banking by yourself.
Our advisers can help you with LPA’s for both your Health and Welfare and Property and Financial affairs as well as the registration of these documents with the governments Office of the Public Guardian.
Although an unpleasant thought capacity of a client can be lost abruptly due to unforeseen circumstances such as an accident or acute health episode. It is important to consider getting an LPA in place in good time as these applications can often take several months to be registered and can not be registered once you have lost capacity.
Power of Attorneys are not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. We are proud to be members of the Institute of Professional Willwriters who provide us with our accreditation in this area.
