Lasting Power of Attorney Solicitors
In Bognor Regis, West Sussex
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legally-binding document allowing you (the ‘donor’) to name someone you trust, whether a friend or family member, (your ‘attorney’) to make choices about your health and wellbeing, finances, or belongings, either now or in the future, on your behalf.
It’s important to take action now, choosing someone you trust to manage and protect your interests in the future. If you don’t, when the time comes the courts could make the decision for you. And there’s no guarantee that their decision would be the same as what you would have preferred by those nominated in a LPA.
We always recommend you consider an LPA as soon as possible, and with MJR Solicitors you’ll get all the expert help and legal advice you need from a trusted and local solicitor.
What types of LPA are there?
There are three types of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) that you can choose depending on your circumstances. You also have the choice of using the same person or people for all types or nominating different people to look after each one for you. However, there’s a different process in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
As the most common LPA, this enables your nominated LPAs to act on your behalf to pay bills, set up standing orders or direct debits, pay fees, look after any investments, sell property, and use your bank account to withdraw and deposit money.
This LPA enables your nominated LPAs to decide where you live, the type of care you get and where you get it, and whether to continue or discontinue any life-sustaining treatment.
What would happen to your business if you were unable to make decisions? You can't assume people will be able to step in, you need to make sure they are legally entitled. This is where a business LPA will help.
