Power of Attorney

You maybe aware of the importance of making a Will, but have you ever stopped to wonder what would happen if you became mentally ill or incapable of dealing with your affairs?

What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document which allows you to appoint someone that you trust as an ‘attorney’ to make decisions on your behalf. This is often a spouse or a child.

Attorneys can make decisions for you when you no longer wish to or when you lack the mental capacity to do so.
