Lasting Powers of Attorney
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is the document that allows you to appoint a trusted person (or people) known as an attorney, to look after your affairs.
An LPA can be created at any time as long as the person setting it up has the mental capacity to do so. If capacity is lost then so has the opportunity to create one.
There are two types of LPA.
One allows your attorneys to look after your finances (Property & Financial Affairs) should you no longer wish to or not be able to make decisions yourself.
The other allows your attorneys to look after your welfare (Health & Welfare) should you no longer be able to make decisions yourself.
They may never be needed but should you lose capacity without them in place, assets can be out of reach to even your spouse or children.
How we work
We would arrange a meeting with you at your home, or place of work, at a time to suit you (which often means in the evening) to discuss your circumstances and objectives.
We understand that for many people this will be the first time they will have a Will or Lasting Power of Attorney written and therefore we take time to explain all aspects in language that can be understood.
Tailored drafts for review will be with you within a week of our appointment with documents for signature posted within 3 days of draft approval.

What our clients say…
Matt Ash was very professional, patient and reassuring. Without his expertise we would not have been able to get our Wills done or LPA’s completed.
