Power of Attorney – Planning Ahead
Power of Attorney – What is it?
A Power of Attorney is your legal written authority appointing someone to make decisions or take actions on your behalf. Your Power of Attorney will name a person (or persons) to be your Attorney(s). Your Power of Attorney will also state when your Attorney(s) can step in and begin their role.
You can make a Power of Attorney if you are over the age of 16, and you can appoint anyone as an Attorney if they are over the age of 16. You can appoint more than one principal Attorney and can even consider a substitute Attorney should your principal Attorney become unable to do things for you.
Your Power of Attorney can contain anything to do with decision making including what happens with your money, property and your personal health or welfare.
How do I make one?
If you are interested in making a Power of Attorney, please contact our Anne Bolger. For those within the local Glasgow area, our fixed fee for a Power of Attorney is £240 including VAT, plus the Office of the Public Guardian fee of £81. There may be a small additional charge if we have to travel to you. For those out with the local Glasgow area, please give us a call to discuss.
You may be able to have it done free of charge and we will check to see if you are eligible for Legal Aid.
Give us a phone or email Anne to arrange a telephone appointment to discuss your requirements.
