At St Helens Law our specialist solicitors can advise you on the best ways to protect your family’s future and to prepare you for every eventuality. There are various ways we can do this, but the most useful one is a  Lasting Power of Attorney.

A Lasting Power of Attorney enables you to select people who may act on your behalf and make decisions for you, if you are unable to do so yourself. This could be due to illness or an accident and this could prevent you from looking after your own affairs. There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney.

1: Property and Financial Affairs
2: Personal Health and Welfare

Lasting Powers of Attorney are extremely useful as a planning aid. If you were to be in an accident or have a sudden period of illness, there is enough for your loved ones to worry about without having additional stress about how to pay bills or deal with companies who will not speak with them due to data protection.

A Lasting Power of Attorney can be made at any time, registered and then stored safely until such time as it might be needed. Here at St Helens Law we prepare Lasting Power of Attorney for many clients and often they go hand in hand with preparing a Will. A Will is the perfect complement to a Lasting Power of Attorney, as coupled together, they prepare you for anything.
