Much has now been written about the benefits of a Lasting Power of Attorney.
It is a way to ensure that if you ever are unable to deal with your own property and finances or make decisions about your health and welfare, someone else can.
So, who should be appointed to make those decisions for you? Ideally a family member or close friend who would be willing to help you should the need arise. But what if you have no close family or friends or are worried about the burden of appointing them? That is where you can choose to appoint trusted professionals such as your Accountant, Financial Advisor or Solicitor.
A professional power of attorney will charge for their services but having a professionally drawn Lasting Power of Attorney gives an opportunity for fee details to be discussed and included in the Power of Attorney so it is clear what fees will be charged and how those fees will be calculated.
At Wrigley Claydon we act as Attorneys for many such clients who now have the peace of mind that should the need arise, their affairs will be looked after professionally, sensitively and in accordance with their wishes.
