Lasting power of attorney
A lasting power of attorney is an opportunity for you to make provision in advance for the possibility of you becoming incapable of managing your own financial and welfare affairs during your lifetime. It is a very important and powerful document which is often made at the same time as making a will.
Your solicitors role
A solicitor can guide you through the lasting power of attorney process, explaining the options available and can also act as your certificate provider. Your solicitor will carefully draft your lasting power of attorney to reflect your wishes and can also make the application to register the document with the Office of the Public Guardian on your behalf. In some cases, a solicitor can also be appointed as your attorney either alone or together with a relative or close friend providing you with complete peace of mind that your affairs will be professionally managed if you ever become incapable of managing them yourself.
