Lasting Powers of Attorney
People who lack mental capacity need someone else to manage their legal, financial and health affairs. The Mental Capacity Act 2005 made provision for people to choose someone to manage not only their finances and property should they become incapable but also to make health and welfare decisions on their behalf. They will be able to do this through a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA).
An LPA is a complex and serious document and should be properly and carefully prepared by a fully qualified Solicitor. At Penn Chambers, our specialist Solicitors can ensure that is done.
You may wish to draw up an LPA for yourself safe in the knowledge that you no longer need to worry about what would happen if you become a victim of an accident or serious illness. However, for many people, it is as they become older or more infirm that they seriously consider what they would wish to happen to them should their mental and physical condition deteriorate.
If you or your loved one become incapable of making decisions for themself and have not appointed another person as their attorney, their personal affairs would become the responsibility of the Public Guardianship Office.
Are you worried about the welfare and property of a loved one who is currently unable to manage their own affairs?
Deputyship provides protection for them and gives you the legal authority to make important decisions regarding their welfare or property such where they will live, medical treatment or managing their assets.
A deputy is appointed by the Court of Protection and can be a friend or relative or a professional such as a solicitor.
Emergency applications to the Court for deputyship may be necessary if your loved one, friend or relative is likely to suffer serious loss or harm imminently.
Applying to become a Deputy can be a complicated and time-consuming process but our legal advisors are empathetic and understand the process and can help you through the process.
