Court of Protection & Lasting Powers of Attorney
Increasing numbers of clients are asking us to assist with the preparation of Lasting Powers of Attorney which enable clients to choose who will look after their affairs should they become incapable of doing so in the future.
We offer a fixed fee service for Lasting Powers of Attorney and if necessary arrange a home visit.
In cases where a client is unable to look after his or her own affairs we can also also assist with an application to the Court of Protection.
LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY (LPA)
FOR THIS FEE we will prepare the document in accordance with your particular requirements, act as certificate provider, arrange for the registration of the LPA with the Office of the Public Guardian, correspond with your chosen attorneys regarding their role and responsibilities and provide you with two certified copies of each LPA once registration was complete.
APPLICATIONS TO THE COURT OF PROTECTION
These are necessary when someone needs to manage the affairs of someone who no longer has the mental capacity to manage their own affairs.
These fees are fixed by the Court of Protection except in exceptional circumstances. These do vary from time to time and we will advise you of the current fees on request.
