Help with Lasting Power of Attorney
A Lasting Power of Attorney is a document that officially recognises someone who can make financial and healthcare decisions for you if you are no longer able to
People can find themselves unable to manage their financial affairs and healthcare decisions at any time of their life; having a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in place can ensure that your affairs are managed properly should the worst happen.
There are two types of LPAs available:
• A Property and Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney gives someone you trust the authority to deal with your property and finances, for example paying bills and managing your budget
• A Health and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney allows your chosen representative to make healthcare decisions on your behalf, but only if you no longer have the capacity to do so
Jarmans Solicitors can help guide you through the process of creating an LPA, advising you on choosing a suitable and trustworthy attorney, drafting and signing paperwork, and registering your LPAs with the Office of the Public Guardian. Our professional team can also train your chosen attorney, educating them on their duties and responsibilities.
Should you find yourself in a position where you don’t have a trusted friend or relative who is suitable to be your attorney, our partners can also act as your attorney in respect of property and financial affairs.
We offer legal advice for all your Lasting Power of Attorney needs. If you would like to contact us or book a consultation with a member of our team please fill in the ‘Make an Enquiry’ form or call us on 01795 472 291 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
From the moment I instructed Jarmans Solicitors I felt confident this would be a quick and seemless purchase, unlike my previous Solicitors! Sonia Thrower in particular was amazing at keeping me updated throughout.
We have just successfully purchased our first home with the help from Sonia Thrower at Jarmans. We are very impressed with the service that we received, at first we were quite worried as the person that was given our case had left and Sonia took over at very early stages. With our purchase it was very different to normal as we also had land attached to our property where it started to get a little confusing with title numbers etc
Jarmans Solicitors are friendly, welcoming and very Professional. Great attention to detail, wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Thank you to Julia for all your help.
