All you need to know about Lasting Powers of Attorney

None of us like to think about los­ing the abil­i­ty to man­age own affairs and to make deci­sions about mon­ey and wel­fare. How­ev­er, an esti­mat­ed 700,000 have demen­tia, includ­ing one in five over 80. Brain injuries or men­tal health prob­lems ren­der oth­ers inca­pable of mak­ing their own deci­sions. It is there­fore impor­tant to put arrange­ments in place ear­ly, so that some­one we trust can make those impor­tant deci­sions on our behalf.

You now do that through a Pow­er of Attor­ney. Changes to the law relat­ing to the pow­ers of attor­ney took place on 1st Octo­ber 2007. Endur­ing Pow­ers of Attor­ney (EPAs) were intro­duced in 1987, and were replaced by Last­ing Pow­ers of Attor­ney (LPAs), intro­duced under the Men­tal Capac­i­ty Act 2005.

JBGass are expe­ri­enced in han­dling LPAs from start to fin­ish in an effi­cient and friend­ly mat­ter. We are used to deal­ing with clients through fam­i­ly mem­bers where need­ed and our ser­vice has been used remote­ly also.
