5 reasons to choose ICS Law for Powers of Attorney

22nd December 2022·Company News

Here at ICS Law, we are proud to assist our clients in creating Powers of Attorney. 

A legally binding Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) will give someone that you trust the power to look after your affairs in the event that you are no longer able to do so yourself. An LPA will serve to grant another individual the authority to make legal and financial decisions on your behalf.

Our team at ICS Law have plenty of experience in assisting clients with both Health and Welfare LPA and Property and Financial Affairs LPA. Read on for five key reasons why you ought to choose ICS Law for all of your Powers of Attorney needs.

1. We can assist with Health and Welfare LPA

A Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare will only come into effect in the event that you lose the mental capacity required to make decisions for yourself.

This type of LPA will enable someone close to you, whom you trust implicitly, to make key decisions on your behalf. The Power of Attorney in this instance will grant the right to make choices around things such as where you live, what medical care you receive or what you will eat, for example.

If you are looking to create an LPA that will safeguard your health and welfare, we can work with you to make sure you are making the right choice in line with your needs. Our team can then put all of the necessary wheels in motion to create a legally binding Power of Attorney for you.

2. We can assist with Property and Financial Affairs LPA

A Lasting Power of Attorney for Property and Financial Affairs differs from a Health and Welfare LPA in that it can be used in order to allow someone to make decisions on your behalf, even when you still retain full working mental capacity.

The benefit of this type of LPA is that your attorneys will be able to handle any affairs that you may not be able to manage, should you face mobility issues in the future. This means that they can manage your financial affairs, such as visiting the bank or paying bills, giving you full peace of mind.

If you think it is time to create an LPA for your financial affairs, we can help you to ensure you are making the right choice for your needs, and fulfil your objectives in line with your wishes.

3. Our team can provide solutions in difficult situations

An LPA is only valid if an individual has not been put under any pressure to create it and they have the full mental capacity required to comprehend the implications of this legally binding document. As such, it cannot be created after a person has suffered the loss of their mental capacity.

In the event that a loved one has lost their mental capacity, we can provide urgent solutions to the issues you will be facing. We can approach the Court of Protection on your behalf and help you to make arrangements surrounding deputyship orders.

4. We are committed to putting your needs first

Here at ICS Law, we are always committed to placing your needs firmly at the forefront of all that we do.

When it comes to creating an LPA, we will work with you to ensure that you are making the correct choices in line with your own best interests. It’s our job to work with you to find the right solution for your needs and enable you to implement it.

5. We have a wealth of experience

The team here at ICS Law have plenty of experience in carefully guiding clients through the process of creating an LPA, from start to finish.

We hope that our high level of experience and knowledge will help to put your mind at rest when making major decisions regarding the creation of a Lasting Power of Attorney.
