Powers of Attorney

Power of Attorney Cornwall

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document that enables an individual or individuals chosen by you to deal with your affairs if you become unable to do so at some point in the future.

We will take care of all of the preparation and registration of Lasting Powers of Attorney for a fixed fee, clearly quoted to you before any work begins, meaning that you won’t face any unexpected bills.

Without a Lasting Power of Attorney in place, costly and time consuming applications need to be made to the court and the person appointed may not have been the person you would have chosen.

There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney:

  • Property and Financial Affairs
    In the event that you are unable to look after your finances due to ill health, accident or incapacity, your chosen attorney can step into your shoes and can deal with, for example, the running of your bank account, management of your investments and buying and selling of property.
  • Health and Welfare
    This document would enable your chosen attorney to make decisions on your behalf, if you are unable to do so, regarding issues which impact upon your medical condition and personal welfare.
