Lasting Powers of Attorney
Lasting Powers of Attorney are legal documents in which you appoint someone you trust to look after your affairs on your behalf.
We recommend our clients make Lasting Powers of Attorney even if they are in good health. It is very much easier to set them up before they are needed. If it is left until someone can no longer look after their own affairs the process is far more complex. The Power of Attorney is not used until the person who has made it is unable to look after their own affairs.
There are two types of Power of Attorney – one for Health and Welfare, the other for Property and Financial affairs. Normally people make both.
