A lasting power of attorney is a useful legal tool that helps to make sure your personal or financial interests are properly taken care of. If you’re worried that you might no longer be able to manage certain aspects of your life, either through old age or disease, a lasting power of attorney can help take some of the load off.
With a lasting power of attorney, you’ll choose someone you can trust to make decisions on your behalf. This can be a relative or a friend. The most important thing is that you trust them 100%. Remember, when the time comes, they will have full decision-making powers over managing your finances and property, and even possibly your healthcare needs.
At Temperley Taylor, we believe you deserve the best advice, particularly when it comes to the security of your assets. To speak to one of our legal advisors contact our Middleton office on 0161 643 2411 or our Heywood office on 01706 623 511. You can also fill in our online enquiry and we will be in touch.
