More about Power of Attorney

Many of us worry about how we'll cope in old age or when we lose the capacity to look after our own affairs. A Lasting Power of Attorney can be put in place to answer those concerns and act as a reassurance that your best interests will still be looked after. It can be put in place at any time so that when you need it, you can get help immediately. We know from our own experience in dealing with thousands of clients that putting in place powers of attorney is one of the most important things they feel they've ever done.

You can make one form of lasting power of attorney without making the other. There's no requirement to do both, but a lasting power of attorney must be registered, either by the donor or the attorney, before it can be used.

Appointing an Attorney

There are lots of things you need to think about when considering powers of attorney and appointing an attorney, not least whether you believe the person to be trustworthy and to have your best interests at heart. Our experts will take the time to explain your options..

Planning ahead

Arranging a lasting power of attorney helps to plan what happens to you and your finances in accordance with your wishes while you're alive, but it's also important to ensure your wishes are carried out on your death. The best way to make sure this happens is to make a will. At Access Legal we can arrange for a will at the same time as helping you with your LPA.
