Power of Attorney

Power of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is an extremely important document. It allows you to appoint a representative (attorney) to look after your affairs at a time when you are unable to. This could be as a result of being out of the country, a spell in hospital or mental or physical incapacity.

Our team are able to advise on the most suitable power of attorney document for you and arrange for its preparation.

o    General powers of attorney – you appoint someone to manage your financial affairs whilst you retain capacity but need assistance
o    Lasting Power of Attorney for property and financial affairs – you appoint someone you trust to help you make decisions in relation to your house and finances
o    Lasting Power of Attorney for health and welfare – you appoint someone to make decisions in respect of your health and welfare when you are not in a position to do so yourself

For more details about the different types of Powers of Attorney, please see our Powers of Attorney – a client’s guide.

We regularly deal with the registration of existing Enduring Powers of Attorneys (EPAs) at the Office of the Public Guardian and can advise on all aspects of registration and your duties as an appointed attorney.

We are also able to act as Attorneys or assist with the day to day management of a person’s affairs.

We are able to visit clients either at home, residential home or hospital, whichever is the most convenient for you. Please contact us by telephone on 01394 388605 or email nicola.weldon@gotelee.co.uk. You can also visit any of our offices in Melton, Woodbridge, Ipswich, Hadleigh or Felixstowe to arrange a suitable appointment.
