Lasting Powers of Attorney Solicitors in Scunthorpe

No one knows what will happen in the future, so to know that your wishes will be respected if you lack capacity to make decisions yourself gives you peace of mind. A misconception about Lasting Powers of Attorney is that they are only relevant to the elderly; they're not - everyone should consider making one.

Here at QualitySolicitors Bradbury Roberts & Raby, based in Scunthorpe, our dedicated Wills and Probate department is highly experienced in guiding you through the process and ensuring that your LPA is valid.

1. Property and Financial Affairs - allow your Attorney to deal with your financial affairs, for example: -

  • Sign cheques on your behalf
  • Withdraw money from your bank/building society account
  • Pay bills
  • Sell or purchase a house for you

2. Health and Welfare - allow your Attorney to make decisions on your behalf about, for example: -

  • What medical treatment you receive
  • How you are cared for, e.g. at home or in residential care
  • Whether you receive life sustaining treatment
Why do I need a Lasting Power of Attorney?+

Read what our Consultant, Robert Taylor, has to say in his blog.

Your next of kin is not automatically entitled to run your affairs or make decisions for you, if you are unable to do so.  No one has any right to deal with your assets or make medical decisions unless you have given them prior authority.  Therefore if you lose capacity to deal with your own affairs without an LPA in place, someone would have to apply to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship Order, which can be time consuming when you need to make quick decisions in a difficult situation.

Who should have one?+

Everyone should consider making a Lasting Power of Attorney while they still have mental capacity. It is perhpas obvious to assume that an older couple might want to set one up so that their children can take care of their affairs in old age, but what about a younger couple with children and/or a business to run? if something happened to the main breadwinner, how would they cope?

Find out more about the process involved by downloading the guide at the side of this page. Then simply give one of our Wills experts Victoria Norman or Sarah Inman, a call on 01724 854000 for a friendly chat to discuss what type of LPA is right for you.
