Lasting Power of Attorney

Thinking about the unthinkable...

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is created to allow someone else the ability to look after your affairs if your mental capacity is lost. It isn't a nice thing to think about which is why most people will put it off for as long as they can.   We would advise however, that you do this sooner rather than later as an LPA can only be created when your mental capacity is sound. 

More often than not people create Lasting Powers of Attorney in later life when there is a higher chance of mental capacity being lost through dementia for example.  However, mental capacity can be lost at any age as a result of say, an accident, so we would also advise anyone with complex financial affairs to have one as well.

At Banner Jones we have a team of LPA specialists in Chesterfield, Dronfield, Sheffield and Mansfield who can advise you on the best course of action for your particular circumstances.

What Do I Do Next?

We are always keen to find the best solution possible for your particular circumstances, and we know that no two families are the same. Whatever your circumstances you can telephone us or make an appointment to discuss your situation with us in more detail. We will then be able advise you as to the best way forward.
