that if you begin to lack capacity and don't have a Lasting Power of Attorney in place, your relatives may need to go to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship?

It’s a sad fact that 1 in 3 of us will die with dementia.  If you are caught out at some time in the future, then it’s a nightmare. 

 

Every adult should have a Power of Attorney

 

This appoints someone you trust to take control of your affairs should the need for that ever arise. 

 

If you are unfortunate enough to be caught out without a Power of Attorney then your family will need to go to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship. 

 

This is an expensive and long drawn out process. 

 

It requires your family to put substantial money up-front. 

 

So no-one should take that risk, every adult should have a Power of Attorney put in place in case it is needed.

 

If you can’t think of anyone that you would trust to be the attorney then you can appoint McClure’s Trust Corporation as the attorney. 

 

If you have someone in mind that you would like to appoint as the attorney but you are not 100% sure of them,

 

then you can appoint McClure’s Trust Corporation as an additional attorney to provide a check on what the family member can do. 

 

So everyone should have a Power of Attorney.

 

However why pay perhaps £500 for the financial Power of Attorney and perhaps £900 for both the financial and the welfare Powers of Attorney when McClure will provide both of these for a single payment of £249 and donate £30 of their fee to charity.

 

We are told this is the best deal in the UK so why not contact McClure and save money.
