Power of Attorney

Major Family Law solicitors can assist with any Power of Attorney matter, to ensure the right person has the authority to act on your behalf, should you become unable to. The person you choose as your Power of Attorney can make decisions regarding your health and welfare, as well as finances and property.

It is reassuring to know that your business and personal affairs can be properly and safely looked after by the appropriate people. The only way to ensure this is by taking out a Power of Attorney. Additionally, there are many reasons why you might need to appoint a Power of Attorney.

Firstly, if you are a property or business owner, then it is essential that you protect that investment of time, money and effort. It is important that you enable someone to look after that business, should you have an accident or lose your mental capacity for any other reason.

Secondly, you may well have parents who are becoming more vulnerable and need the security of knowing that, with Powers of Attorney in place, their family can look after their best interests if they lose their mental capacity.

A Power of Attorney solicitor can help you understand the legal process of appointing someone to take care of your assets. They can also draw up the correct, legal document to make sure the right person follows your instructions appropriately.

If you would like to discuss any of these matters without obligation, then please do not hesitate to contact our Power of Attorney solicitor, Christian Swinburne, by telephone on 01661824582 or by email at christian@majorfamilylaw.co.uk.
