Power Of Attorney
Be prepared, appoint a Power of Attorney
In the event you become unable to make decisions for yourself, your affairs will become the responsibility of the Office of the Public Guardian, or in some cases, the Court of Protection. Appointing a Power of Attorney is protection against this.
Your chosen Power of Attorney is legally required to act in your best interest. While a Will can direct your assets and wealth, your appointed Power of Attorney can manage your whole estate and care should you suffer temporary or permanent loss of mental capacity.
Loss of mental capacity is unfortunately not an uncommon occurrence as a result of accident or illness (such as stroke or dementia). Appointing a Power of Attorney gives you and your family the peace of mind that you will be looked after by someone you can trust.
Our standard fee is £190 to appoint your Power of Attorney, and you will also be required to pay an additional £82 to the Office of the Public Guardian. The process is straight forward, and we recommend taking advantage of a free, no obligation consultation with one of our specialist estate planning Advisors to ensure you get the best protection for your future needs.
