Benefits of making a Lasting Power of Attorney

  • Plan in advance who you want to appoint as an Attorney to make decisions on your behalf
  • Stipulate how you want your Attorney to make decisions
  • Minimise the distress for yourself and your family and friends if you were to lose mental capacity by having a Lasting Power of Attorney in place

When setting up your Will, we would always recommend that you create a Lasting Power of Attorney for the future whilst you are still able to, as once you have lost mental capacity then your loved ones would have to go through a more costly and lengthy process of making a Deputyship application to the Court of Protection
