POWER OF ATTORNEY
Have you considered who you would like to look after your affairs if you become unable to do so?
By arranging a Lasting Power of Attorney, decisions regarding pensions, investments, and property would be made by a person of your choice. This can also help prevent squabbling under what will already be difficult circumstances.
Not planning for this possibility can mean sometimes it is too late. If you fail to elect anyone then your affairs will be arranged by the Court of Protection - Public Guardianship Office. Their role in your affairs may be costly, intrusive, frustrating and upsetting.
