Lasting Powers of Attorney

A Property and Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) allows you to plan ahead by choosing someone you trust to manage your finances and property if you are ever unable to do so yourself. The document can be helpful even if you do not lack capacity. For example, it may be useful for you to give someone the power to pay your bills or collect your benefits if you are finding it difficult to get about for some reason.

The Welfare LPA allows you to appoint one or more persons to take decisions on your behalf about your health & welfare if you are unable to make them yourself.

For a limited time, we are offering a discount to friends and family of clients who have already put LPAs in place with us. If you would like to refer someone to take advantage of this offer please contact us.

Good News!  – Help for attorneys in dealing with the Banks

A new document recently issued by the British Banking Association, The Law Society and the Office of the Public Guardian with contributions from Age UK and the Alzheimer’s Society gives new guidelines to assist financial institutions in providing fair, appropriate and consistent standards of practice to customers who have other people acting on their behalf.

The framework has been launched to reduce the stress and complex administration often faced by people managing someone else’s finances. The guidance will help staff in banks and building societies to recognise and understand Lasting Powers of Attorney, Deputyship Orders and other third party management arrangements.
