Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) provide protection for you and your loved ones by giving one or more people the legal right to make important decisions on your behalf. These decisions could include matters of health and welfare or even financial affairs that you no longer have the mental capacity to deal with alone.
By putting powers of attorney in place you can ensure you retain control over your affairs no matter what the future holds, giving you peace of mind and reducing potentially distressing delays for your loved ones should you no longer have mental capacity. With an LPA in place your trusted nominee will be able to:
- Manage your finances and take control of your business
- Maintain control over your welfare
- Manage your medical care and treatment based on your wishes
- Avoid prolonged and costly court battles over your assets
