We are often approached by clients who find themselves in difficulty because a member of their family has gone into a home and they can’t access their bank account to set up a direct debit or they need to sell the house and lack the legal capacity to do it.

If the person who needs care has already lost their mental capacity to appoint someone to act for them then it is too late for them to sign a Power of Attorney so the more difficult and more expensive route of seeking a Deputyship Order may become necessary.

That being the case it pays to give thought to preparing a Lasting Power of Attorney at any age but particularly as we advance in years and want reassurance from putting our affairs in order.

We offer the service of fully preparing, advising on and registering Lasting Powers of Attorney – both for Property and Financial Affairs and for Health and Welfare.
