A Lasting Power of Attorney allows you to choose someone, known as your attorney, to make decisions on your behalf. Once registered, this can allow your attorney to make decisions on your behalf immediately or at a time when you can no longer make decisions for yourself. The majority of lasting powers completed relate to property and financial affairs. These authorise an attorney to operate bank accounts, manage investments and buy and sell property on your behalf. It is also possible to appoint attorneys to make decisions regarding health and welfare matters. This may cover medical treatment that you would, or conversely may not wish to receive, in such circumstances that you may specify and also whether you continue to live in your own home or move into residential care.
AMD can advise you on the appointment of appropriate attorneys and assist with the preparation of a Lasting Power of Attorney tailored to meet your particular requirements.
What our Clients say
“AMD Solicitors recently assisted with the creation of a Will for myself. Their Private Client team were fantastic throughout the whole process. The initial meeting was able to be conducted over video call, during which they were able to answer various questions I had and advise as to the appropriate action to take. Subsequent correspondence was clear and prompt, I particularly appreciated the practical advice in relation to the witnessing of documents whilst under lockdown arrangements. I would not hesitate to recommend AMD Solicitors to others, keep up the good work!”25/02/2021
I previously used AMD on a commercial basis, and needed some matters trust-related to be dealt with. I was put through to Andrew Jack, and the services he has provided, have been excellent. At times, he has brought in Florence, and our Family have always felt at ease with AMD’s Client Care. Strenuously recommended.15/03/2019
