Powers of Attorney

Mental incapacity can affect everyone, young or old, leading to enormous worry and distress to those nearest to them.

These problems can be moderated with a Lasting Power of Attorney (or a registered Enduring Power of Attorney) which allows your chosen attorney(s) to deal with your financial affairs or take decisions on your behalf relating to health and welfare issues.

Where no attorney is appointed, we can also help with the often complex application that would need to be made to the Court of Protection to appoint a Deputy on your behalf who can the deal with the administration of your affairs.

We can also advise Attorneys and Deputies on the possible tax planning opportunities available and assist with any financial administration that may be necessary.

Work scope

  • The validity and effectiveness of any existing Power of Attorney and how they should be operated
  • The registration of existing Enduring Powers of Attorney
  • The preparation and registration of Lasting Powers of Attorney
  • Applications to appoint a Deputy
  • Preparation of Living Wills
  • Administration of finances
