“Don’t think you suddenly give up control. You can choose whether Lasting Powers of Attorney can be used either before, or only when, you lose mental capacity.”

That is the view of the ‘money saving expert’, Martin Lewis OBE, who has once again advocated the benefits of arranging Lasting Powers of Attorney.

Lewis is an award-winning TV and radio presenter, writer and, according to Google statistics, the most searched-for British man.

With one person in the UK now said to develop dementia every three minutes, he has once again raised the subject of Lasting Power of Attorney as being an increasingly important issue for many families across the country and beyond.
