If I am able to manage my affairs, why do I need to make a Lasting Power of Attorney?

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a document by which you authorise someone, for example, a relative, friend or professional to deal with your financial and/or personal welfare affairs if you were unable to do so. It is important to make a Lasting Power of Attorney whilst you are well enough to do so. If you become incapable of managing your affairs due to dementia for example, then it is too late to make a Lasting Power of Attorney. We can advise you with regard to a Lasting Power of Attorney and on the next steps if it is too late to make one.
