Lasting Powers of Attorney

Lasting Powers of Attorney are the only safe way of ensuring that if you become mentally infirm or otherwise incapable of managing your own affairs a family member or other person you trust will look after things for you.

Regrettably as more and more people are living longer the number of people suffering from Alzheimer’s or Parkinsons or suffering disabling strokes is rising.

If you do not make a Lasting Power of Attorney and are unfortunate enough to suffer from Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, or suffer a stroke your affairs will be dealt with by the Court of Protection – a quasi government body. The person appointed by them to be your Deputy may not be the person you would choose to manage your financial affairs.

The cost of making a Lasting Power of Attorney is far less than appointing a Deputy through the Court of Protection. You can prevent the additional costs which follow from the Court of Protection being incurred and also ensure that the person you choose deals with your property and affairs.
