It is easy to be complacent about the future, however, none of us can predict what might happen, you may develop a major illness, dementia or have a life-changing accident at any time and without warning.

It is therefore vital that you consider planning for the future with a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) which will protect you in the event you lose your mental capacity to make certain decisions.

What is Power of Attorney?

An LPA is a legally binding document that gives one or more persons (the attorney) the authority to make certain decisions on someone else’s behalf when you can no longer do so yourself, due to either mental or physical incapacity.

An LPA allows you to put certain arrangements in place regarding your health and who will look after your finances and any business interests, ensuring the right decisions are made by the people you trust.

Types of LPAs:

  • Property & Financial Affairs
  • Health and Welfare

You can either put just one or both types in place, but you must be over 18 and have the mental capacity to do so.

Our LPA Services:

LPA – Health and Welfare

This type of LPA permits the appointed attorney to make decisions on your health and welfare, only when you lack the mental capacity to do so yourself.

These decisions include those around medical care, whether to move into a care home and the ability to consult with GPs and the Local Authority.

LPA – Property and Financial Affairs

This type of LPA permits the appointed attorney to deal with your property and finances as you specify, even before capacity is lost with permission.

It is beneficial because if an individual has an accident or is incapacitated but they still have mental capacity, their attorneys can manage their affairs for them including paying bills, managing bank accounts, collecting pensions or benefits and selling any properties.

Business LPA

For business owners it is vital that you have an effective business continuity plan in place. The cornerstone of this should be a business LPA.

What would happen to your business interests if for any reason you were unable to make decisions yourself? Your business could be in breach of its regulatory commitments and it may suffer without the right key decision-makers ready to step in and manage it should the worst happen.

Our Fees

Where possible we offer fixed fees or a transparent pricing structure, so you’ll always know the likely costs up front.
