Powers of Attorney
Power of Attorney brings great comfort knowing that someone you trust is ready to handle your affairs at any time. We can help you make the necessary arrangements.
Our Power of Attorney solicitors, based in Ipswich, will work with you to appoint someone of your choosing to have Power of Attorney which will enable that person to manage your property and financial and/ or health and welfare decisions in the future if necessary. This allows you to have a person you trust to make these type of decisions on your behalf.
What’s more, many people are not aware that their next of kin does not have an automatic legal right to manage one’s affairs.
Without a Power of Attorney, it becomes necessary to apply to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship Order.
This is an expensive and frustrating procedure. Therefore having a Power of Attorney in place gives you peace of mind that there is someone you trust to manage your affairs in the event that you are unable to do so perhaps as a result of illness, disability or old age.
This can so easily be avoided by putting the necessary arrangements in place and that’s where we help.
Our personal solicitors in Martlesham Heath near Ipswich will help you make a Power of Attorney, which is tailored to your circumstances. We can also work with attorneys, providing essential guidance on their role, rights and duties, and they can come to us for ongoing advice.
This all-encompassing service is designed to the make the process as easy and hassle free for you and your loved ones.
In the event that you do not have Power of Attorney in place then, when the time comes, a person would have to apply to the Court of Protection to gain the necessary legal authority which can be a very expensive and time consuming process.
To make life easier for you, we offer fixed fees where possible and our solicitors are happy to visit you at home.
Wherever you are based in East Anglia, let our personal solicitors in Ipswich guide you through this important and very personal process.
