Our legal advice video series continues with a new entry, this time on Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). Choosing a person to take care of your legal affairs is not a decision that should be taken lightly, and we want to ensure our clients are well informed.
In the video our resident expert on the matter, Maria Pusey, answers some of the most commonly asked legal questions our clients ask about LPAs. She discusses the why and how of making a Lasting Power of Attorney, as well as the question of who should be your appointed attorney. She draws the distinction between a Property & Financial Affairs LPA and a Health & Welfare LPA, and in which circumstances they may be used.
Maria offers this counsel on making this important decision: “It’s very important that you choose your attorney carefully. You need to trust these people implicitly, because they are going to manage your finances in the future if you become unable to do so”.
Along with our video from Maria, we’ve created a number of articles and videos to help guide you through the common issues and misconceptions around Wills, Probate and Lasting Powers of Attorney.
Take a look at our Wills & Probate Advice series for more useful guides.
