Lasting Powers of Attorney can be used not only when you have lost capacity but when it is necessary for practical reasons for someone to look after things for you. Putting this in place can also provide valuable peace of mind that your loved ones will not have to deal with lengthy and expensive court applications if they need to step in and manage your affairs. 

If you don’t have a legal arrangement in place, anyone is entitled to make an application to the Court of Protection to deal with your medical and financial matters as your deputy and this may not be someone you would choose. Arranging a Lasting Power of Attorney ensures that you choose who should act for you and how they should act.
 

What we do and where we specialise

We advise clients nationwide on the protection of their interests, our friendly team of solicitors can provide guidance on all aspects of the process and documentation, ensuring your interests protected, now and in the future.

There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney. One relates to property and finances, the other to health and welfare issues. Once you have specified your needs, the Lasting Power of Attorney must be signed by you, your attorneys, and a Certificate Provider – usually a solicitor or a GP. Once this is done, the document can be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian. The registration process usually takes between 6 and 8 weeks.

Before it can be used, a Lasting Power of Attorney must be registered, so it is a good idea to do this as soon as possible, so that it is ready and can be used whenever your attorneys need it. Until the Lasting Power of Attorney is required, we can store the registered documents for you, free of charge.

From providing you with advice in the process and preparing the documents in accordance with your specific requirements, to ensuring it is signed correctly, we can manage the whole process for you.
