Powers of attorney

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) means that, when you no longer have capacity to manage your own affairs, you can have peace of mind that your directions are being followed by someone you trust, acting on your behalf.

Just as we recommend that everyone should make a will, we also recommend that they put in place an LPA as early as they reasonably can, to cover all eventualities. 

Without an LPA in place, should you lose mental capacity by way of an accident or sudden onset of a medical condition, for example, your spouse or loved ones will not be able to access your assets or manage your affairs and welfare needs.  They would need to apply to the Court of Protection to gain authority to do so.

Our experienced specialist lawyers can help you to prepare and register LPAs. An LPA can cover either or both management of your finances and decisions regarding health care and living arrangements.  LPA’s must be properly registered with the Court in order to be effective. 

No two cases are alike. We work sensitively with our clients to understand what is important to them and define how they want their financial and personal affairs to be managed.  We help them to appoint an attorney to make these decisions on their behalf once they are no longer able to do so themselves.

LPA’s can cover day-to-day transactions such as opening a bank account and making payments, major decisions such as buying or selling property as well as health-related matters.
