Lasting Power of Attorney

It is really important to appoint somebody who has authority to manage your affairs if you are unable to do so yourself. This can be done by way of a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)

At Morecrofts, we have specialist Private Client Solicitors, including members of Solicitors for the Elderly, who can help you to complete an LPA. This will ensure that only those who are appointed as your Attorneys can manage your affairs and not somebody you have not personally chosen.

There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney:

  • One covers all of your legal and financial property and affairs.
  • The other covers any personal welfare issues. You can appoint a family member, a friend or simply someone you know and trust to act as your Attorney.

One of our solicitors will also act as your attorney if there is nobody suitable among your family and friends or if you think that they need professional support.

It is a simple yet sensible precaution and is the most effective and efficient way to ensure your future is in safe hands.

Don’t worry if visiting the office is difficult for you, as a member of our team will be happy to come to your home.
