Lasting Powers of Attorney

A lasting power of attorney (LPA) gives another individual the legal authority to look after your financial affairs, or health and welfare, should you lose the capacity to do so. It’s not just for the elderly; younger people may become incapacitated through accident or illness.

If you do not have an LPA in place and later become mentally incapacitated, relatives may face long delays and expense in applying to the Court of Protection to obtain access to, and take control of your assets and finances.

Property and Affairs LPA

This will allow you to appoint whoever you wish to be your ‘attorney’, to manage your finances and property. Your attorney will be able to; buy or sell land or property on your behalf; operate your bank accounts (including closing and opening different accounts) and they will be able to receive and use all benefits and pensions on your behalf. An Attorney must act in your best interests at all times.

Personal Welfare LPA

This will enable you to appoint attorneys to make decisions for you in relation to medical treatment, and whether to give, or refuse consent to such treatment. They are also able to decide where you should live and make other general welfare decisions. However, they are only able to make these decisions once you have lost the capacity to make them yourself, be it through injury, or because of the onset of a mental condition.

 

Our team are available in person at our central Chelmsford offices or by phone to discuss all matters relating to Lasting Powers of Attorney.

Our experience will ensure we find the right solution for you and your loved ones.
