Lasting Power of Attorney - special Google offer page! - see prices in red below.
A lasting power of attorney is a very important document. Many people see them as a tool to help elderly relatives, but they are vital for anyone whose family will suffer financially should they become incapacitated through illness or accident. With one, almost every financial situation can be catered for. Without one and your finances could be frozen until a much more expensive path is taken to arrange for a suitable person to look after your affairs.
It is a common misconception that joint bank accounts can be used while one person has lost capacity - this is not the case and even joint bank accounts will be frozen by the bank until capacity is regained or an attorney is created. If capacity is lost before an LPA is created, the cost and issues rise dramatically.
We will draft and submit your LPA
LPAs need careful completion or else they will be returned with a further submission fee required. Although they can be completed with time and effort, it is the options to include that should be most seriously considered. Should you appoint attorneys jointly, or jointly and severally; what restrictions should you have in place to ensure your finances are protected; should you give immediate power, or delay them until a specified event? We can answer all these questions, and guide you through the common pitfalls, as well as seeing through the whole process until completion.

Our fees and special offers
There are two types of LPA - a property and financial affairs version (the most common one in use) and a health and welfare version. We charge £300 for one LPA, or £500 for both for one person. If a couple take both the cost will be £800 for all four (prices include vat). There are also court fees per LPA of £82 per document. Your Google offer is for £250 for the first LPA and just £150 for a second - so £400 for both for one person for example. Court fees apply.
If you also need a will at the same time we will cut the cost of this in half so you pay just £130 for two mirror wills on top. To consider that solicitors often charge around £500 for a single LPA, we offer amazing value, and are backed by the IPW indemnity insurance scheme, so the advice and service is guaranteed.
Face to face advice
We only give face to face advice because of the nature of a Lasting Power of Attorney. As your certificate provider we measure your ability to make the LPA in the first place. This will mean any challenge in the future or other issue can be dealt with, such as your ability to appoint certain attorneys.
As an IPW member, we have been professionally trained and have the backing of professional indemnity insurance. We are trained to draft and register your LPA as well as providing on going support and guidance at no cost.
