Lasting Powers of Attorney
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) lets you choose someone to make decisions about your property and finances or health and welfare should you lose mental capacity, and in the case of financial matters if you simply no longer wish to make those decisions yourself.
Naturally none of us like to consider the possibility but sadly circumstances can arise when we may lose our decision making capabilities. If this happens without an LPA in place your loved ones will need to make an application to Court to manage your affairs on your behalf. This is a longer and more costly process, and might result in someone being appointed who you wouldn't have selected yourself.
Our team will help you create an LPA that clearly states your wishes. We'll explain the processes involved and make sure you're prepared for the future.
