A Lasting Power of Attorney may be required to allow you to make key decisions for the benefit of a loved one who may not be able to look after themselves.
A Lasting Power of Attorney will give authority to the person to whom it is given (the ‘Donee’) the ability to make decisions regarding the finances, health or welfare of the person who is granting (the ‘Donor’) the Lasting Power of Attorney. These are 2 separate types of Lasting Powers of Attorney and we can help you to apply for one or both of them.
It is important that the person granting the Lasting Power of Attorney has the mental capacity to be able to do so. If he or she is elderly or at risk of suffering from Dementia, we would recommend that you act swiftly.
We can assist you in the preparation of all the necessary documentation and lodge any application to register the form with the relevant authorities.
You may waste a considerable amount of time and costs attempting to complete the documentation yourself. As mistakes are easily made and some of the fees required for lodging the application are non-refundable, it is best to seek expert advice from a solicitor.
We can arrange home or hospital visits to meet the needs of our clients.
