Power of Attorney & Court of Protection

A Power of Attorney enables you to appoint somebody else to look after your affairs when you may no longer be able or willing to do so yourself. Where a Power of Attorney cannot be granted then it may be necessary to seek the help of the Court of Protection in order to appoint somebody to administer the affairs of a loved one who is no longer able to do so.

The law on Powers of Attorney is changing and from October 2007 it will no longer be possible to create an Enduring Power of Attorney but it will be possible to create a lasting Power of Attorney which provides wider scope for the role of the Attorney but will require additional formalities to be observed when the Lasting Power of Attorney is granted and for it to be registered with the Court of Protection.

These are all matters in which we can provide personal and considered advice and guidance to enable you and your loved ones to reach a decision that is right for you.
