Lasting Power of Attorney Service – Giving someone the authority to act on your behalf.
Do you or a member of your family need a Lasting Power of Attorney Legal Agreement in place?
A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal agreement that enables a person to appoint a trusted person or people to make decisions on their behalf.
What are the benefits of having a Lasting Power of Attorney in place?
A Lasting Power of Attorney Gives you more control over what happens to you if you have an accident or an illness and can’t make your own decisions.
You decide who to appoint and what happens to you.
It can be reassuring to know that if you are unable to make a decision for yourself in the future, the person you choose will make the decisions for you.
Making an LPA ensures that the person you want to make decisions for you will be able to do so. This prevents a stranger or someone you may not necessarily trust from having this power.
It also helps start discussions with your family and others about what you want to happen in the future.
There are two forms of Lasting Power of Attorney:
- Health and Welfare
- Property and Finance
You Must Have Mental Capacity
To arrange a Lasting Power of Attorney you must have the mental capacity to do so if the donor’s (the person seeking the LPA) capacity is in doubt a formal capacity assessment should take place. Nellie offers a Formal Capacity Assessment as part of the LPA service.
We hope you never need to use your Lasting Power of Attorney but like many things in life, it’s better to have it in place in case you do. That’s why our inclusive Lasting Power of Attorney packages offer a fast, efficient, cost-effective service with the added benefit of a registered professional to guide you through the process.
When choosing who to complete your Lasting Power of Attorney ensure their fees include the items below. There are many companies offering to complete lasting power of attorney forms for as little as £45. However, as they do not include the following these can end up costing thousands.
Our service includes
