There are many issues to consider as we get older. Amongst them is the concern over who would look after your assets, should you become ill, housebound or need to move to a nursing or residential home.
You can appoint an attorney to deal with your affairs in any of these situations and to provide peace of mind. This is done by executing a Power of Attorney or a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) whilst you are well enough to do so. If you are not well enough to execute an LPA then your family will be able to apply to the Court of Protection.
We can offer advice on the preparation of LPAs and Deputyship applications.
Our team of specialist lawyers can also advise on other issues that may concern you including:
- Local Authority funding for long term care
- Inheritance Tax
We are able to offer home or hospital visits, if you are unable to travel to one of our offices.
