Lasting Power of Attorney

Everybody should make provision for help with looking after their financial affairs or their general health care and welfare in case of an accident or illness – did you know that if this happens to you and you are unable to make a decision for yourself then your family are not legally entitled to access your money or give instructions on your behalf? How would you cope? How would your family cope? By making a Lasting Power of Attorney (known as an LPA) you can decide who will have access to your property and money to pay bills and take decisions on your behalf about your health and other medical matters.

There is a lot to be considered when making a Lasting Power of Attorney and you need a legal advisor who can guide and advise you to make sure the LPA confirms exactly what you want.
