Powers of Attorney Simplified
Most people think their spouse, partner or child will be able to automatically deal with their affairs if they become ill or lose the ability to make their own decisions. This is not true.
It’s important to appoint somebody you trust to become your ‘Attorney’ in a legally valid LPA document. Once registered by the Court and with your permission, your Attorney will be able to make decisions and act on your behalf.
We Offer 3 Types of Lasting Power of Attorney
Property & Financial Affairs (LPAF)
This document will allow your Attorney to make decisions and act on your behalf with respect to your property and financial affairs. This could include steps like helping pay your bills, make enquiries at the bank, buying or selling property and managing investments.
Health & Welfare (LPAH)
This document will allow your Attorney to make decisions and act on your behalf with respect to your health and welfare. This may involve dealing with decisions affecting your day to day care, medical treatment, social requirements and end of life decisions.
Business Property & Financial (LPAB)
If you have business interests, you may wish to appoint a separate individual to make decisions with respect to your business affairs in the event you are unable to do so, either alongside or in replacement of your LPAF Attorney.
