Powers of Attorney

Unfortunately, people sometimes lose their capacity to deal with their affairs and to make decisions. A Power of Attorney enables you to give the power to a person of your choice, to manage your affairs and make key decisions, should you lose the capacity to do so.

The law relating to Powers of Attorney changed in 2008 and making the sort of Power of Attorney that continues even after you lose mental capacity, is now a lot more complicated. We endeavour to help you through what can be a stressful and confusing process and to advise you where you are able to save time and costs.
