As highlighted by Martin Lewis (the Money Saving Expert) on 14 December 2016 the importance of making a Lasting Power of Attorney (“LPA”) cannot be overstated. In Martin’s words “It’s even more important than a Will”.
An LPA allows you to nominate a trusted friend or relative to manage your assets and make welfare decisions for you should you lose your capacity. You may think that this will never happen to you, but capacity can be lost by anyone at any age, the most common causes being illness or accidents. If you have your own assets then don’t leave things to chance – without an LPA it’s a long and very expensive process to apply through the Court of Protection.
Here at Backhouse Solicitors our LPAs start from as little as £250 plus VAT and all appointments are conducted by our friendly and experienced team of Solicitors. Contact us today to arrange a FREE 30 minute consultation to find out how we can help protect your future.
