Lasting Powers of Attorney are a way of choosing someone to make decisions for you when you are unable to make decisions yourself, for example if you have an accident or develop an illness such as dementia.
If you do not have a Lasting Power of Attorney in place, an application will need to be made to the Court of Protection to put in place a deputyship order. This means a judge will decide who should make decisions on your behalf. This can be an expensive and time consuming process, and can be avoided by putting in place a Lasting Power of Attorney.
We have extensive experience in helping individuals and families put Lasting Powers of Attorney in place. We also provide advice to attorneys of existing Lasting Powers of Attorney.
