Are you considering appointing a power of attorney for yourself or a loved one?
There are various reasons why you may need someone to make a decision on your behalf, it could be a temporary issue, perhaps whilst you are in hospital or it could be a long term matter, for instance dealing with dementia.
There are two routes to look in to: powers of attorney and lasting powers of attorney.
Powers of attorney is the way in which you can give someone the authority to act on your behalf and is valid whilst you still have the mental capacity to make your own decisions. However, there are ways in which you can limit the power of attorney, so that they can only deal with certain aspects of your life, for example, your bank account but not your house.
Lasting powers of attorney will give someone the authority to make a decision on your behalf, if you are either unable to, or no longer wish to make the decision for yourself.
We can provide advice and set up your power of attorney or lasting power of attorney arrangement.
