If a time comes and you are unable to make decisions for yourself which may affect your well being and financial matters, a Lasting Power of Attorney will give people that you nominate the power to make decisions on your behalf.

There are two different types of Lasting Powers of Attorney.  These must be completed carefully and registered with the Office of the Public Guardian so that if you lose capacity to make your own decisions or require assistance in dealing with your affairs, you know that you have appointed someone you trust to act in your best interests and on your behalfhttps://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/office-of-the-public-guardian.

A Property and Financial Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney will enable the person or people you have chosen to make decisions with regards to your property, for example running your bank and savings accounts, dealing with any investments you may have or even selling your property.

The Health and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney will enable a person that you nominate to make decisions in respect to health or medical decisions, such as giving consent to medical treatment on your behalf.

We are happy to discuss the options that are available to you, to ensure that you make the best decision when appointing your attorneys.
