Lasting Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA)
Appointing someone to manage your affairs on your behalf, should you ever become unable to deal with them yourself.
In the United Kingdom approximately every 5 minutes someone will suffer a stroke. The repercussions of this unfortunate event can be devastating, often resulting in life-changing consequences. Besides the physical challenges, a stroke can also impact the mental capacity of the victim, leaving them unable to make decisions for themselves.
Have you ever taken a moment to consider what would happen if you found yourself in such a situation? Who would you want to act on your behalf in your best interests? This is where Heald Solicitors Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) services become invaluable.
Lasting Power of Attorney, or LPA, is a legal document that allows you to appoint someone you trust to make important decisions on your behalf, should you lose the mental capacity to do so yourself. These decisions can pertain to your health and welfare or your property and financial affairs. By creating an LPA with Heald Solicitors, you can ensure that your wishes are respected and that the right decisions are made in your best interests.
Many people underestimate the importance of having an LPA in place. Without one, your family, friends, or loved ones will not automatically have the legal right to act on your behalf. Instead, they would need to apply to the Court of Protection, a process that can be both time-consuming and costly. Not only does this create a significant financial burden, but it also means that decisions about your well-being and assets may be made by individuals who are less familiar with your preferences and values.
Creating an LPA with Heald Solicitors is a straightforward process that involves selecting a trusted individual, known as an attorney, to act on your behalf. This attorney should be someone who understands your values and will act in your best interests. LPAs can cover either your health and welfare or your property and financial affairs, or both.
