Lasting Powers of Attorney are official documents that enable the people you trust to look after you in the future, should you become unable to make decisions due to physical or mental incapacity.
The two different types of Lasting Powers of Attorney provide you with peace of mind in respect of the management of your property and finances and decisions that might need to be made about your health and personal welfare.
