Professional Power of Attorney Service

No one likes to think about losing the ability to manage your own affairs, and drawing up a Lasting Power of Attorney can seem like a daunting process. For peace of mind it is more important than ever that you make Lasting Powers of Attorney to nominate people you trust now to make important decisions on your behalf in the future. Most people don’t realise that if you lose the ability to make decisions for yourself, your partner or family do not automatically have the right to do this on your behalf. Even joint bank accounts may be frozen if one of the account holders loses mental capacity. A Lasting Power of Attorney ensures that you have a say in who helps you with your finances and welfare and gives your family one less thing to worry about, as handing over to a professional can be a means of cutting through family conflict, and providing assurance in the event of any disputes arising with other family members.

What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?

A Lasting Power of Attorney gives another person, or more than one, the legal authority to make certain decisions on your behalf, in the event that you are unable to do so, or lose mental capability, whether it is through a brain injury or developing a disease such as Alzheimer’s. Making an LPA is not just for the elderly, but for all manner of people including those who take part in extreme sports or participate in contact sports.

There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney and most people choose to do both types in order to have complete protection.

  • A Property and Financial Affairs LPA – an attorney can make decisions on such as matters as buying or selling property, paying the mortgage and bills, investing money etc.
  • A Health and Welfare LPA- an attorney can make decisions about your healthcare, where you live and your medical care etc.
