Are you in the situation where you or a family member are considering a Lasting Power of Attorney ? From our offices in St Helens we can assist if you have been given the authority to act on another persons behalf.
Our specialist team will help draft a Power of Attorney or Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) which will then establish what will happen in the event of either physical disability or the further loss of mental capacity. We understand this is a difficult process to go through and you can rest assured we will act with both empathy and the utmost professionalism.
There are two different types of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) document:
- A LPA which covers both property and financial affairs, plus
- A welfare LPA which covers decisions regards a persons welfare and healthcare in the event the individual is lacking in their mental capacity.
If you want to draw up an LPA, appointing a spouse, family member or close friend to manage your financial affairs in the event you should lose physical or mental capacity in the future, we can assist you with the legal documentation and registry with the Office of Public Guardian.
