Are you concerned that a loved one might soon be unable to look after their own affairs themselves and want to ensure someone they trust can act on their behalf?
If the answer is ‘yes’, then talk to us about Lasting Powers of Attorney and how they work.
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal tool that allows you to appoint someone to make certain decisions on your behalf. The appointed person (your attorney) can manage your finances for you in the future if you reach a point where you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself. They can also make decisions relating to your health and welfare.
Just as everyone should have a Will, they should also make an LPA, and it is wise to make it as soon as you can to cover any eventuality where you might lose mental capacity.
