Power of Attorney

An individual can grant a Power of Attorney in favour of another person to make decisions about their welfare or financial affairs in the future.  The majority of Powers of Attorney are put in place to provide the nominated person with the authority once the granter loses the ability to deal with matters themselves and becomes incapacitated.  This is most often, though not always the case, with the elder generation.

 

The benefit of granting a Power of Attorney is that the granter has complete control over future events and this also obviates the need for possible intervention by way of a Guardianship Order which can be stressful for family members and cause delay in taking necessary action.

 

We offer a fixed fee service in respect of the preparation and registration of a Power of Attorney.  Home visits can be organised on request.
