Specialist Power Of Attorney Lawyers

Establishing a power of attorney is a critical aspect of estate planning. It is essential to prepare for the possibility that, at some point, we may become incapable of managing our own affairs.

By having a power of attorney in place, you can help your family avoid the potentially time-consuming and costly process of seeking court intervention to manage your affairs.

There are many reasons why a power of attorney is important. These include:

  • 1 in 3 of us will suffer from dementia.
  • A power of attorney will save time and money.
  • It enables you to fund critical care.
  • You decide who the attorney is. Without instructions in place, the court decides.

At Jones Whyte, our specialist power of attorney lawyers will be able to ensure your instructions are clear.

What Is A Power of Attorney?

Curious about what a power of attorney is? You’re not alone. With so many myths and misconceptions surrounding this topic, it’s important to get the facts straight. Our team is here to provide the answers and guidance you need.

In essence, a power of attorney is a legal document that authorizes a trusted individual to make decisions on your behalf concerning financial matters, property, and personal care if you become unable to do so yourself. Our power of attorney solicitors are here to help throughout the whole process, ensuring you completely understand the decisions being made and what that means for those involved should it be needed.

The key is to establish a power of attorney before it’s needed. Waiting until it’s necessary could mean it’s too late to set one up.

Also, it’s crucial to understand that a will is distinct from a power of attorney. While a will outlines how your estate should be handled after your death, it says nothing about the management of your affairs during your lifetime.

By choosing one of our power of attorney solicitors at Jones Whyte, you can enjoy cost-effective services that prioritise your wishes and intentions.

Why Would I Need A Power Of Attorney?

Some of the key reasons why a power of attorney is important include:

  • Designating a trusted individual: A power of attorney allows you to appoint a reliable and competent person who has the legal authority to act on your behalf in the event that you become unable to manage your affairs. This ensures that your financial affairs, medical care, personal welfare and other important decisions are in the hands of someone you trust.
  • Maintaining control over your affairs: By setting up a power of attorney, you can maintain control over your assets and personal matters, even when you are unable to manage them directly. This document grants the designated individual the authority to make decisions in accordance with your wishes and best interests.
  • Avoiding court intervention: Without a power of attorney, your family may need to seek court approval to manage your affairs, which can be a lengthy, expensive, and emotionally draining process. Establishing a power of attorney can help your loved ones avoid these challenges and take care of your affairs more efficiently.
  • Ensuring timely decision-making: In times of crisis or emergency, a power of attorney allows your designated representative to make important decisions without delay. This can be especially crucial in medical situations where swift action may be necessary.
  • Providing peace of mind: Knowing that someone you trust will be responsible for your affairs if you become incapacitated can offer significant peace of mind for both you and your loved ones.

A power of attorney is an indispensable element of estate planning. It not only allows you to designate a trusted individual to manage your affairs but also provides a range.
