Why you should make a Power of Attorney
We all hope to stay fit and well as we get older. Sadly, that can't be guaranteed. Therefore, it's vital to plan ahead so that your affairs are always looked after by someone you trust.
Putting in place a Power of Attorney can give you peace of mind.
A Power of Attorney is a written authorisation for someone else to represent or act on your behalf in private affairs, business, and other legal matters. Usually that power is given to family members, friends or your solicitor.
You can set up a Power of Attorney at any age – it's not just for older people.
The process is simple.
Arranging a Power of Attorney is relatively inexpensive.
However, if you don't have one and become frail it may be necessary to apply to the court to have a Guardian appointed for you. That can take several months, get your loved ones involved in a complex process and be much more expensive.
To make life easier for you and those you care about, we’re happy to discuss Power of Attorney and other legal matters at any time.
