A lasting power of attorney document serves as a legal instruction which allows you, the donor, to appoint someone, generally an attorney who has expertise and is permitted to provide legal advice, for the purpose of making decisions on your behalf when you are not able to, for instance should you become mentally or medically incapacitated. Lodge Brothers attorneys specialise in providing Probate Sunbury services and can direct you in setting up this legal document. There are 2 types of lasting power of attorney; one for health and welfare and the other for property and financial affairs and a donor has the choice to make use of either, or both types.

The first step to appoint your Lodge Brothers attorney who will provide you with the relevant paperwork to complete and advice you regarding Probate West Byfleet and the 2 types of lasting power of attorney Ashford which is available and what they cover. For example the Health and welfare power of attorney covers decisions pertaining to your daily care and lifestyle routines, medical care options, care home options and aspects relating to life-sustaining treatment such as which heroic measures or extraordinary procedures that you wish therapists to do in order to either save or extend your life when you are unable to provide instruction. All aspects relating these aspects are very personal and can make a monumental difference not only to your life, but the lives of your family members which is why engaging with a attorney for this purpose will simply the process and ensure that your choices are safeguarded.

When it comes to Probate Shepperton, property and financial affairs, Lodge Brothers Legal Attorneys will guide decisions relating to aspects of your bank, building society, account payments, benefit collection and the selling or distribution of your home and assets, allowing you to have the final say as to how these aspects should be managed. This, in conjunction with your last will and testament will ensure that your decisions about your estate and finances are executed legally and with no contest, before your departure, if you are no longer mentally or medically able to refer.

Once you have fully consulted with Lodge Brothers in terms of your options, the paperwork will be completed and lodged with the Office of the Public Guardian which can take to 20 weeks to be finalised, for which there is a nominal cost of (as per gov.uk in 2022) £82.

If a Lasting power of attorney has not been registered at the point at which mental capacity is lost, a deputy will be appointed by the Court of Protection, however this complicated and costly process does not ensure that your personal wishes are met, however all legal aspects relating to a person’s care and well-being will be considered on an on-going basis, as required. The family will not be able to provide input as to what personal care should be or what decisions should be made regarding your finances. This can leave the family in a vulnerable position in the long run.

We can advise on making LPA’s, prepare the documents and deal with registration at the Office of the Public Guardian (“OPG”).

LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY | ASHFORD LEGAL SERVICES

When a family member passes, it is time of great importance as it is the end of a life which is both mourned and celebrated.  Having a funeral or memorial service is an important way to ensure that those who remain behind are able to both mourn and celebrate the loved one as part of their grieving process. The rituals which we attach to the passing on from this life, no matter your religious background, culture of belief, facilitates closure which helps those who may be struggling to let go. Funerals are your very last chance to meaningfully say goodbye to your loved one which means that funerals are by, nature, very emotional.  However we also know too well that there is a time for all of us, to leave our families. A time which one should prepare for in advance.

Lodge Brothers Wills, Probate, or Lasting Power of Attorney

If you parent, sibling or partner were to pass away unexpectedly tomorrow, would you know what is legally required in terms of handing their death? Did you know that all deaths must be registered within 5 days, including weekend and bank holidays? This is just the first step on the list of things to do when dealing with an individual’s passing.

Once the event has been registered, a certificate of burial or an application for cremation, which ever the case is, must be processed. The certificate of burial must be provided to your funeral director after which you can begin the process of arranging the funeral or cremation. The funeral director should be registered and can help you to plan the funeral and will also be able to assist you how to make payment arrangements.

Bear in mind the updated Covid-19 restrictions which will be applicable at the time and how this will impact on the events of the funeral or the cremation. Scotland, Wales and Norther Ireland will have different restrictions for attending funerals and so these should be noted where applicable.

Other legal requirements include managing tax and benefits and applying for probate Sunbury. Applying for probate Shepperton is what must be done when requesting the legal right to deal with someone’s property, money and possessions, commonly referred to as their ‘estate’. If there is a Will, the grant of probate will be provided and letters of administration will need to be annexed. In the event that the individual concerned did not leave a Will, then letters of administration will be provided.
