Power of Attorney
A Power of Attorney is a document giving authority to someone else to act on your behalf. We are specialists in the field of Powers of Attorney and Court of Protection work, offering elderly Clients and their families a comprehensive advisory service.
A Lasting Power of Attorney can be made to deal with your property and affairs, and a separate Lasting Power of Attorney to deal with welfare issues. These types of Powers of Attorney will continue even if you become mentally incapable of managing your own affairs.
A simple Power of Attorney can, however, still appoint someone else to act on your behalf, but will not continue should you become mentally incapable. This type of Power of Attorney will be extremely useful for people going abroad, where they may wish to appoint someone else to look after their affairs, or, alternatively, business people who wish to make sure that there is someone who would be able to deal with the business in the event of absence of physical capacity of the business owner.
Your Power of Attorney can appoint one or more people to act on your behalf. For further details on Public Guardianship Office and Powers of Attorney, please contact one of our Lawyers.
