A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) makes provision for a trusted person of your choice to make decisions about your health, welfare, property and financial affairs — in the event you suffer from a loss of mental capacity due to accident or illness.

The potential to suffer from strokes, brain injuries or Parkinson’s disease increases as we age, and over 850,000 people in the UK are currently affected by dementia (Alzheimer’s Society). Loss of mental capacity could leave you or a joint account holder unable to access your bank account, pay your bills and maintain your home unless you have prepared an LPA


A Health & Welfare LPA

A Health & Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney instructs an appointed attorney to make choices on your behalf when you are unable to make decisions for yourself. Your chosen attorney can organise the appropriate daily care, medical care, living arrangements or life-sustaining treatments, saving you a great deal of money and distress at a time when you are most vulnerable.

We can explain all the options and draw up documents to leave you confident your affairs will be managed correctly by someone you trust.

And with a Health & Welfare LPA in place, you will remove the need for your family to endure the costly, lengthy legal process of applying to the Court of Protection to grant a deputy authority to act on your behalf.


A Property & Financial Affairs LPA

Unlike a Health & Welfare LPA — which is designed to protect you when you cannot make decisions for yourself — a Property & Financial Affairs LPA makes provisions for you before this might happen.

As soon as you register a Property & Financial Affairs LPA, you can give your attorney permission to pay bills, collect benefits, manage your investments and even deal with buying or selling a property on your behalf.

We can discuss your current circumstances in a FREE no obligation meeting and recommend the best course of action to take to protect you, your family and your assets.

What to Consider

Passing without a will in place could leave your loved ones facing financial hardship, unbearable pressure and mounting legal fees at a time of mourning. A will helps protect your assets and relieves the debilitating worry your family could face.

Did you know that over 850,000 people in the UK are affected by dementia? Loss of mental capacity could leave you unable to access your bank account, pay your bills and maintain your home unless you have prepared a lasting power of attorney.

Probate can often seem overwhelming so close to bereavement, and the process can appear confusing, time-consuming and complicated. We can apply for a grant of probate on your behalf and administer the probate forms to relieve the pressure.

A Family Trust can be a simple way to protect your assets and put your family first. It lets you choose how to benefit your family during your lifetime and makes critical provisions should you die. Assets can be diminished over time, and a Family Trust is a cost-effective way of preventing this from happening.
