Lasting Powers of Attorney
Parker Arrenberg solicitors can draft and advise on Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs), Advance Decisions and Advance Statements. These important legal documents allow you to select another person, or more than one person, to make decisions on your behalf in relation to your Property and Financial Affairs, or your Health and Personal Welfare if you become incapable of doing so yourself.
If you become incapacitated without a Lasting Power of Attorney or other form of legal directive in place, your loved ones will need to apply to the Court of Protection for a ‘Deputy’ to be appointed to manage your affairs. This can be a lengthy and complex process, causing further distress for your loved ones.
If you would like advice on setting up a LPA or if you are an attorney for someone else, our lasting power of attorney solicitors can help you.
Lasting Powers Of Attoney Solicitors
Our experienced Lasting Power of Attorney team have the knowledge and expertise to explain the entire process with you and discuss all your options available. We will prepare the LPA documents for you, advise you on how to get them correctly signed and witnessed and then make the application for the LPA on your behalf to have it registered with the office of the Public Guardian.
The two types of LPAs include:
- Property and Finance
- Health and Welfare
Unfortunately, a large number of LPA applications are rejected by the Office of Public Guardianship every year, so it is vital to seek the advice of an experienced solicitor and ensure the LPA is correctly completed to avoid any risk of this being challenged at a later date.
We have an expert team of experienced Lasting Power Of Attorney and Estate Management Solicitors ready to assist you and guide you on the requirements and drafting of your LPA. Our advice is tailored to you, we will work to understand your requirements. We will assist you in making some of the more difficult decisions and ensure our drafting is clear on your needs and expectations.
Where there are more complex matters to consider, such as multiple or overseas properties, high-net-worth assets, or ownership of businesses, our advice and services will need to reflect the more complex work involved to ensure your LPA is drafted correctly to protect you, your family and your assets.
Our specialist Private Client team can also assist on several other matters regarding Wills and Estate management including:
Your solicitor will always ensure that you are fully aware of any fees involved, and where possible we will work to a range of fixed fees depending on your requirements. If that is not possible, we will provide you with a very clear and transparent fee quotation that ensures you fully understand the fees you need to pay and what is included in those fees.
