Lasting Power of Attorney
A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document that lets you (known as the 'donor') appoint people (known as the 'attorneys') to make decisions on your behalf.
Francis can help you write a Lasting (and other) Power of Attorney.
Do you need to safeguard the interests of someone?
By drawing up Powers of Attorney you can avoid confusion and expense at a later date.
The fact of the matter is that although we may be living longer, often our minds do not last so well. A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) enables you to appoint someone you trust to deal with your affairs for you. They are complicated to complete - and you can do them yourself online www.justice.gov.uk/about/opg . We can advise you on the issues and draw the LPA for you.
You may want another form of Attorney to deal with specific issues e.g. completing a property transaction during a prolonged absence from the UK or you are a co-owner (known as a 'trustee') of land with another person. We can draw the relevant type of Power of Attorney for you.
We offer fixed price fees.
Who will manage your affairs if you become unable to?
