Power of attorney

A lasting power of attorney will ensure there is someone to take good care of you should you become incapable of caring for yourself.

Our experienced power of attorney solicitors can advise which type of attorney is best for you. We can also help you to choose a suitable person.

How we can help

There are two types of lasting power of attorney:

  • A property and financial affairs lasting power of attorney – this handles your finances, taxes, benefits and assets
  • A personal welfare lasting power of attorney – this is responsible for more personal matters such as your living arrangements and medical treatment

Many people appoint someone close to them, such as a spouse, friend or relative. Others prefer to choose a professional, to act on their behalf. If you require a professional attorney, Cripps Trust Corporation, run by our lawyers, can act for you.

We can make all the necessary arrangements for you – from preparing your application to providing the necessary paperwork, including acting as a certificate provider which is a formality required before registration. We can also mediate disputes between different attorneys.

If you need to appoint an attorney urgently, we can also help by preparing a general power of attorney until a permanent one can be registered. Our power of attorney solicitors are there to help you every step of the way.

It is only possible to make a lasting power of attorney whilst you have mental capacity. If you lack mental capacity and don’t have a lasting power of attorney in place, then our Court of Protection solicitors can help.
