Lasting Powers of Attorney
A Lasting Powers of Attorney allows someone else to make decisions and manage your affairs on your behalf in the event you become incapacitated and are unable to manage them yourself.
There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney, one to manage your financial and property matters and the other to manage your health and personal welfare issues.
It is a fairly straightforward procedure involving the completion of a questionnaire and two visits to our office. It is important to bear in mind that if you have not made a Lasting Power of Attorney and become incapable, the court will have to appoint a Deputy to manage your affairs. This can be very expensive.
