Business Powers of Attorney

Our Probate department are able to offer full assistance to clients wishing to appoint Powers of Attorney or Attorneys with immediate effect or in preparation for the event of loss of mental or physical capacity.

Following recent changes in the law, the appointment of an Attorney is a much more complicated procedure than it was previously. It is now possible to appoint an Attorney to act on your behalf in relation to your Property and Affairs and separately in relation to your Personal Welfare by preparing a Lasting Power of Attorney.

Prior to 1st October 2007, a client could complete an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA). Any existing EPA is still valid and can be used. If the donor of the EPA loses mental capacity the EPA must be registered with the Court of Protection; there is a strict procedure to follow. We can help you with this.

We have prepared an information sheet that covers all of the main points about Powers of Attorney that you can download free by clicking this link:
