Power of Attorney (POA) – Half price
Every adult should have a Power of Attorney (POA) just in case it is needed
In England we need two POAs, one for our assets (house and money) and one for our welfare.
The Financial POA enables the person you appoint to take care of your financial affairs if, at some point, you lack the capacity to do this for yourself.
The Welfare POA allows the person you appoint as your attorney to make decisions about anything to do with your health and personal welfare. This includes decisions about:
- Medical treatment
- Where you’re cared for
- The type of care you receive
- Day-to-day things like your diet, how you dress and your daily routine
Without a POA, if you lose capacity, someone will need to apply to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship. This is expensive and takes time and involves the person who agrees to be your Deputy in a lot of paperwork and responsibility. If you don’t have children, it’s even more important to appoint an attorney via a POA as more distant relatives will usually be reluctant to embark on a Court Procedure for a Deputyship or Guardianship.
Age Concern Liverpool & Sefton works with McClure Solicitors to provide local people with a Power of Attorney. The good news is that through Age Concern Liverpool & Sefton, McClure will prepare your POA at half price – £199 instead of their usual fee of £398 (and make or review your will for free if you wish). And they’ll include the Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney free of charge.
