Handing over powers of attorney to another person with regard to your personal affairs is a concept going back to Roman times. There are many reasons why it may become difficult for you to manage your own affairs – it may be age related or you could live in a different country so physically can’t get to the bank.

The most common situation is ageing couples who have the foresight to realise they may need some help as they grow older. If you lose mental capacity then you cannot give power of attorney. This means it can be an expensive, distressing and lengthy process to go to the Court of Protectionand appoint a deputy.

There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney:

Property and affairs – this is a legal document which allows an attorney to make decisions about paying bills, dealing with banks, collecting benefits etc.

Health and welfare – this is a legal document which allows an attorney to make decisions on issues such as medical treatment, personal care and physical welfare.

  • personal service to identify which power of attorney is right for you
  • practical advice in this sensitive area

Thanks for the work of your staff led by Maria. I would like to highlight the contribution of Nadya & Leona in these transactions. While Maria is often the one in the sunshine so to speak, it is through the background work performed by these two that allows this to happen.
