WHO WOULD YOU TRUST TO LOOK AFTER YOUR AFFAIRS?

We are now living longer than ever before. The likelihood of us losing capacity at some point, whether through dementia, illness or accident, is becoming an accepted part of life. It is often assumed that those closest to us will simply take over and make decisions about our finances and health care if we could no longer look after our affairs. However, suppose you are considered to have lost mental capacity. In that case, financial institutions, such as your bank, will usually freeze all your bank accounts, even if they’re joint accounts, and prevent any access to funds.

While a Will is an essential legal document that ensures your wishes relating to your estate are distributed in the way you want it, a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a crucial document for when you are alive. An LPA can appoint people you want to take care of your affairs when you are considered as not being in the full capacity to make your own decisions. It will also avoid costly and lengthy Court of Protection proceedings to appoint someone to look after your property and finances and healthcare decisions.
