We would always suggest arranging a Lasting Power of Attorney while you are young, fit and well. An LPA will give you added peace of mind that your affairs will be looked after, whatever the future holds – and, for maximum security, it’s best to set an LPA in place even if you already have a Will, especially if you have a history of physical or mental illness in your family or you want to make especially sure that your partner will be looked after by a specific attorney.
Our welfare lawyers in Essex will talk you through your options and, in the first instance, help you decide which kind of LPA suits your needs. They can also assist you with choosing the right person to take on these important responsibilities. If you are finding it difficult to choose a suitable attorney, we can take on this role for you; more information on this arrangement is available on request.
In sensitive circumstances where a deputyship may be more appropriate, you can trust our deputyship solicitors to navigate the case with sympathy and professionalism. We will ensure that the best interests of the individual are protected at all times. We will guide you through the application and deliver clear, expert advice at every stage of the process.
