LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY
A LASTING POWER OF ATTORNEY IS VITAL
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document that allows you to choose who will take over your affairs if you lose capacity. Most people think about loss of capacity as being purely a result of old age. However, we can all lose capacity at any time as a result of an accident, illness or stroke.
The implications of not having LPAs are substantial costs, long delays and potential loss of control to a court appointed Deputy.
Our consultants can help you to set up your LPAs with straightforward, professional advice, all from the comfort of your own home.
