Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) allow you to make provision for someone else to make important decisions for you when you are not able to make them yourself.

We can advise on what an LPA means for you and ensure that it is properly registered so there will not be any doubt about who has your authority to make decisions for you if the time comes. There are two forms – Property and Welfare. These will need to be registered with the Office of Public Guardian. We are also happy to store the documents for you in our safe until the attorney(ies) need to use it. The storage is free of charge. This gives you and your family peace of mind.

We always encourage you to have a Lasting Power of Attorney in place, but sometimes, illness or injury strikes before this is done. If a member of your family or a partner loses mental capacity and there is no registered Lasting Power of Attorney (or valid Enduring Power of Attorney) in place, then this can be an extremely difficult time for you and the family. We will advise and act for you with the steps to take to make an application to the Court of Protection to appoint a deputy to manage your loved one’s affairs. The Court of Protection is a specialist Court for all issues relating to people who lack the capacity to make decisions for themselves.

“I have been a client of Marsons Solicitors for several years having been referred to them by the Law Society.

From my first consultation with my solicitor I felt I was in expert hands and as my case progressed and I had contact with various members of staff I was always treated as a valued client. I was successful in winning my case.

If anyone reading this website is looking for a solicitor to assist them, all I can say is if you need a solicitor you need Marsons”
