LPAs & Deputyship
Lasting Powers of Attorney
We understand that it can be difficult to think about being unable to look after your own affairs in the future but, by making a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA), you will ensure that people you know and trust will be in control of your health and/or finances if the time comes when you are no longer able to deal with such matters yourself.
By making an LPA, it will also avoid the expense, time and complexity of applying to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship Order should you lose mental capacity in the future without having a valid LPA in place.
Our experienced team of practitioners is able to deal with all aspects of your LPA - from preparation through to registration at the Court of Protection.
Quite often, clients choose to appoint our Solicitors as their professional Attorneys and we also regularly get asked to provide expert advice and guidance to non-professional Attorneys acting under an LPA.
If, sadly, you have a relative or friend who has lost mental capacity without having made a LPA, we can provide full and comprehensive advice as to making an application for a Deputyship Order to the Court of Protection which, if successful, would grant the Deputy (or Deputies if more than one) authority over the incapacitated person’s property and affairs.
This can be a complicated process and one which requires attention to detail - our Solicitors have a wealth of experience in this field enabling you to be assured of a quality service at all times.
To further discuss, appointments can be arranged at either office or, alternatively, we are more than happy to visit you at your home or where you are staying.
