Lasting power of attorney

Attorneys can make important financial or medical decisions on your behalf if you lose mental capacity.

We believe all clients should have a lasting power of attorney for property and affairs which could come in to effect at a time when you are unable to manage your financial matters.  Inability could be due to physical or mental incapacity either temporary or lasting.  There are two types of lasting power of attorney – property and financial affairs, and health and welfare.

You can enter into a health and welfare lasting power of attorney where you can appoint an attorney or attorneys to make important medical decisions on your behalf if you lose mental capacity.

A lasting power of attorney for property and financial affairs means that your chosen attorneys can manage your accounts, investments and make decisions regarding your home.
