Power of attorney is a legal document that lets you appoint one or more people to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf should you become unable to make decisions for yourself in the future. The people you appoint are known as attorneys.
There are a number of different types of Power of Attorney, but we most commonly deal with Lasting Power of Attorney.
A Health and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney allows your attorney(s) to make decisions relating to your health and personal welfare including decisions regarding treatment care, where you should live and more.
A Property and Financial Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney allows your attorney(s) to make decisions that relate to your financial and property affairs including collecting benefits and ensuring bills are paid on time.
Here at CLA Trust & Legacy Planning we will explain all your options to you and prepare (and if necessary register) the Power of Attorney for you. We can also act as Attorneys for clients who have no close relative or friend able or willing to do so.
