Powers of Attorney

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document that lets you appoint one or more persons who you trust, known as Attorneys. They can make decisions for you when you no longer feel able to act in relation to your own property and affairs or personal welfare or when you lack mental capacity.

Before an Attorney can act, the document has to be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian. We can also prepare a general power upon your behalf which will enable you to appoint another person to act on your behalf on a specific matter for a limited period of time, for example, in relation to the sale or purchase of a property.

This type of document does not have to be registered. We can also assist in applications to the Court of Protection in circumstances which require the appointment of a person to act as a Deputy on behalf of another who has lost capacity to deal with their property and affairs.
