Powers of Attorney Solicitors in Lancashire
Although it’s a subject many of us would prefer not to discuss, thinking about dividing your savings amongst your loved ones and other beneficiaries in the unfortunate event of your death is very important.
It isn’t enough to simply trust that your financial affairs will be in good hands when you die, however. It’s important to remember that we may not always be in a position to make sound decisions, whether through loss of mental capacity or ill health. To truly secure your finances, making a Power of Attorney is one of the best ways to ensure your wishes are seen through.
What does having a Power of Attorney mean?
Making a Power of Attorney will enable you to continue having control over your assets should you lose the capacity to do so directly, passing on your decision-making to a trusted third party who can carry out your wishes as described by you.
Your Power of Attorney is a legal document allowing someone, usually a family member or a trusted friend, to act on your behalf should you no longer be able to or want to make your own decisions.
A Power of Attorney doesn’t have to be final. Some DRN clients use this as a temporary solution to enable another individual to act on their behalf in legal matters while they are temporarily incapacitated due to illness. The document can always be revised by you, and our expert team are on hand to advise you throughout the process.
