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.

Jackson Barrett & Gass 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.
