Have you ever thought to yourself “What would I do if I was no longer able to manage my own affairs?”
We cannot stress enough the importance of putting a Lasting Power of Attorney, both in respect of your financial affairs and also your health and welfare, in place. These documents give the power to, whoever you have chosen to trust, the permission to manage your affairs, should you become physically or mentally incapable of looking after them yourself.
It is stressful enough when things happen to a loved one, without the added trauma of going through a Court of Protection Application to appoint a Deputy – which, if you do not have a Lasting Power of Attorney in place, appointing a Deputy is both costly and time consuming.
If you wish to know more information about Lasting Powers of Attorney, and would like to discuss in detail, then please contact Christine Fazakerley at our Maghull branch on 0151 526 7131. If the Maghull office is not convenient for you, you can call any of our other 7 branches across Liverpool and the Wirral, where our specialist Lifetime Planning Team are on hand to make the appropriate arrangements for you.
