Powers of Attorney

Making a Lasting Power of Attorney is as important as making a Will.

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document which allows you to delegate certain responsibilities for day to day living that you could otherwise carry out for yourself but anticipate that in the future you may wish someone else to assist you. You choose a person you trust whilst you are fit and well and you will know, not only who will look after you if ever you become vulnerable, but also that you have done all you could to make it easier for them.

Our experienced team can advise on the following:

  • the types of power of attorney
  • when they come onto effect
  • the legal effect of the choices you make
  • new LPA’s work in practice
  • any potential conflict between a welfare LPA and a living will

If you are trying to help someone else and they haven’t put powers of attorney in place, then we can also help when a Court of Protection application is required.
