Lasting Power of Attorney

Accessing someone’s finances if they become incapacitated or ill is a complex and protracted process, which could make things very difficult for a spouse, partner or children. Bills could go unpaid and if cash is needed for any purpose, it would be inaccessible.

Setting up an LPA allows someone that you trust to act on your behalf should the need arise. Your chosen person can then manage your affairs in your best interests. This could be in the long term or until such time that you are able to take up the reins again yourself.

There are two types of LPA, both of which Just Wills And Legal Services can help you with:

A Property and Affairs LPA

This allows your nominated person to:

N

Manage your finances and property

N

Make sure your bills are paid

N

Make decisions about your assets

A Health and Welfare LPA

This allows your nominated person to:

N

Make decisions about your medical treatment

N

Decide whether it’s best for you to continue to live at home or whether residential care would be more appropriate.

If you haven’t set up an LPA, your loved ones may have to pay out a lot of money on your behalf. The Court of Protection would have to appoint a deputy to manage your affairs, which is both time-consuming and costly.

An LPA will avoid the distress of a delay and also preserve your assets to pay for the care you may need in the future.

With Just Wills And Legal Services, setting up an LPA is a pretty straightforward process. Simply contact us and we can give you more details or arrange a meeting.

We found Jamie to be very friendly and listened to us explaining what we wanted from the new Wills and LPA as it was not straightforward. He conducted his business with efficiency and in a very nice friendly manner and I have no hesitation in recommending him to family and friends.
