Powers Of Attorney
If you need to appoint someone else to do things on your behalf, we can prepare a power of attorney for you. Under a Lasting Power of Attorney (“LPA”), you can appoint one or more people to act as your attorneys, and once the LPA has been registered with the Office of the Public Guardian, your attorneys can officially act on your behalf in dealing with banks, building societies and all other bodies.
The advantage of the LPA is that even if you lose capacity after making it, your attorneys can still continue to act on your behalf. You can even ensure that your attorneys only act for you once you have definitely lost capacity, to give you added security.
We can prepare all the documentation that is involved and deal with the registration process for you.
