Lasting Power Of Attorney
What happens if you become unable to make your own decisions (whether for lack of mental capacity or as a result of an accident or illness)?
This might be you. It might be an elderly relative. Anyone over 18 can make a Lasting Power of Attorney. The reality is that it can be regarded as an insurance policy, but costing very little.
There is a solution, and that solution need not be expensive.
A lasting power of attorney is a legally binding document that enables you, or a relative as the case may be (referred to as the ‘donor‘), to appoint one or more people (as an ‘attorney‘) to help you make, or actually make decisions on your behalf, should you, at any time in the future, not be able to do so.
Why a Lasting Power of Attorney? If you lose mental capacity without a Lasting Power of Attorney in place, the consequences can be distressing and extremely costly. Your family are obliged to apply to the Court of Protection for the appointment of a ‘deputy’ – and this can be a slow, gruelling process costing thousands of pounds. We firmly advise you to avoid this, which you now can.
Avoid undue distress and expense, and retain what you have worked hard for.
