Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA's)
None of us knows when we may become physically or mentally incapacitated. As we grow older it is important to try and make life easier for those looking after us. At Bull & Co Solicitors LLP, Andover, we can advise and assist in the making and registering of Lasting Powers of Attorneys.
Creating a Lasting Power of Attorney will enable you to appoint someone you trust to act on your behalf in the event of you being unable to deal with your finances or make decisions about your health and personal care
In the event that you lose mental capacity and are unable to make decisions yourself but have not made a Lasting Power of Attorney we can help your relatives with the application to appoint a Deputy to be able to deal with your affairs.
If you have an older Enduring Power of Attorney already in place this is still valid but would need to be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian if you become incapacitated. At Bull & Co Solicitors LLP, Andover, we can also assist with the procedures involved.
