Powers of Attorney

The sudden incapacity of a friend or relative or the onset of an age related or mental disorder can present you with an inability to access their finances or manage their affairs at a distressing time.

A Lasting Power of Attorney ensures that an appointed person is able to manage affairs in those circumstances, and avoid the need for an Application to the Court to appoint a Deputy. A Power of Attorney can also be used to enable others to conduct particular transactions.  If for example, you intend to be out of the country for a period of time.

We do our utmost to provide a clear and focused approach to ensure that vulnerable persons are adequately protected, and, at the same time, minimising the burden on those closest to them.

We are able to advise and assist in the making and registration of Lasting Powers of Attorney for property and financial affairs as well as for health and welfare, and make applications to the Court of Protection for the appointment of Deputies.
