What are my options to protect my property if I am unable to cope in the future?
Mr and Mrs K were regular clients. We had acted for them on a number of matters and they advised us that they each wished to make a Lasting Power of Attorney relating to their property and financial affairs in case either of them became unable to manage these in the future.
They had two children and asked Louise; how can we appoint our children to act jointly to make decisions on our behalf is we should become ill? After explaining how this could be done they decided to appoint their children to act jointly on their behalf so that any decisions would have to be made by both children rather than one of them.
After the Lasting Powers of Attorney had been registered, Mrs K subsequently became more and more confused and was diagnosed as suffering from Alzheimers disease. Fortunately as she had prepared a Lasting Power of Attorney, her children were able to take over her financial affairs and run these smoothly. This resulted in a substantial cost savings in that there was no need for an application to be made to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship Order.
