Power of Attorney
By means of a power of attorney you can give someone you trust the legal right to assist you with your finances and/or welfare decisions. These can be invaluable and can save family and carers a lot of time, expense and trouble. We can give advice on the different types of powers of attorney available and prepare the document appropriate for your needs.
If you health deteriorates suddenly there may not be time to complete a lasting power of attorney and, in that case, application will need to be made to the Court of Protection for a deputy to be appointed. We can assist with the court application and provide advice to the deputy, such as if specific additional authority is needed to sell a house or make gifts.
