Lasting Powers
of Attorney

 

Future Planning


Because it is impossible to anticipate what might happen in life, we can help you plan for the unexpected. If you want to plan in advance about your future financial affairs and welfare then we can offer advice and assistance.




A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document under which you may appoint someone you trust as your Attorney and whose role it will be to make decisions on your behalf. Attorneys may do so when you no longer wish to or when you lack the mental capacity to do so.




A Lasting Power of Attorney is a safe way of maintaining control over decisions made for you. It allows you to plan in advance the decisions you would wish to be made on your behalf if you lose capacity, the people you would wish to make those decisions and how you want them to reach their decisions. Here at Hewitson & Harker we have the knowledge and expertise to guide you through the process of creating and, where appropriate, registering Lasting Powers of Attorney, both for property and financial affairs and for personal health and welfare.
