Information And Videos About Lasting Power of Attorney

You may want information on Lasting Power of Attorney for yourself or for someone you care about. Either way, the information here will be of value.You will discover how Lasting Power of Attorney actually works and the difference between a Lasting Power of Attorney and a Deputyship (a Deputyship is required, under the direct supervision of the Court of Protection, if capacity is lost and there is no Lasting Power of Attorney).

While the ‘One Show’ video included here talks about loss of capacity a Lasting Power of Attorney is about more than that.

We understand that many people find the subject daunting and the process intimidating. That is why we do things the way we do........

* YES, we take care of the whole process for you. Mistakes are easily made by the inexperienced (and even by some who advertise a professional service) and it doesn’t help that the official forms can be misleading. No surprise, then, that the Office of the Public Guardian say many of the Powers of Attorney they receive for registration are flawed. It is far too important a document to get wrong. Bob Cullen is trained and experienced in providing this service and other professionals such as accountants and financial advisers often refer their clients to us because we provide a superior level of service at very reasonable fees. To see our current fees please visit the Information Desk using the menu at the top or bottom of the page.

* YES, the Office of the Public Guardian can be awkward to deal with so we deal with the Public Guardian for you right up to completion of registration of your Lasting Power of Attorney as part of the service.

* YES, our service really is different. So if you are looking for a personal service that takes you through every step of the process with full non-technical explanations including written guidance and sound advice for you and your attorneys then you will be very pleased with the way we do things. We liaise with your attorneys to ensure they have information and guidance to help them and that they complete their part of the documentation correctly. We even provide our own unique publication containing essential information to guide you and your attorneys. Plus, even after completion of the process you and your attorneys are given a further six months unlimited access to us by email and telephone to help answer queries about any aspect of Powers of Attorney without further charge so you may proceed with total confidence.

* YES, we give the initial consultation by telephone entirely free of charge so by all means call our helpline and ask whatever questions you may have. We shall confirm a fixed cost before you decide to proceed and, if you are aware of what much less ‘inclusive’ services often charge, you will find our fees a pleasant surprise rather than a nasty shock.

We understand that this is not an easy subject for most people. So don’t worry if the information on the links we provide on this page is a little overwhelming. We are very experienced in these matters so just call the helpline with any questions you have.
