No one wants to contemplate the possibility that one day they might lose their ability to look after their own affairs or to make the right decisions about matters concerning their health, medical treatment and personal welfare but with people living much longer these days, the likelihood that you'll need someone to rely on for such matters is now much greater.
A Lasting Power of Attorney will give you peace of mind that you have made all these arrangements in advance safe in the knowledge that the Attorney or Attorneys you bave chosen can make decisions and manage your affairs according to your best interests and according to any specific guidance or controls you have put in place on what they can and cannot do.
Taking specialist expert advice on what a Lasting Power of Attorney is and how you can tailor it to suit your personal circumstances is vital to ensure that you and your affairs are looked after in the future in exactly the way you want them to be. There are many online services available to help you prepare a Lasting Power of Attorney advertising low low fees but we caution our clients about these because in many cases all they provide is a form filling service without giving the detailed advice needed to enable you to make sure the Power you have given is specifically the best for you.
