Lasting Powers Of Attorney


There is no way any of us can predict whether we may encounter a loss of mental or physical capacity. Unfortunately, these situations can occur at any time and bring with them difficult situations and decisions.

 

What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?

A lasting power of attorney is a legal document that enables you to allow someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf. These can be financial, legal or more personal decisions regarding your welfare. You can stipulate when they can make decisions and guide them to make decisions you are comfortable with.

Types of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in the UK

There are two types of LPA we can implement for our clients.

Property and Financial Affairs

Health and Welfare

 

Keep in Mind

Keep in mind that even though you are married or in a civil partnership, this does not mean that your partner will be able to handle your affairs. Without an LPA in place, they will not be able to make decisions regarding your finances or healthcare.

Benefits of Lasting Power of Attorney

You get to choose who makes decisions about your situation. As you can opt for someone you really trust, you can be confident that they will act in your best interests. It’s not something any of us want to think about, but if your situation changes for the worse, your family will already be feeling the strain. So putting an LPA in place can take some of the stress away from them, as they are able to make key decisions.

Get in touch with our expert solicitors today to start the first steps towards setting up an LPA, or for a consultation at our offices in Redcar.
