Our Altrincham Power of Attorney solicitor's are on hand to provide advice for relatives who need to decide an attorney for a loved one.
Ideally a Power of Attorney should be chosen as soon as possible as if a loved one hasn't got the mental capacity it can make things more difficult for relatives trying to manage their affairs.
One in three over 65's develop dementia but don't realise they can appoint a relative as an attorney to manage their financial matters.
The Mental Capacity Act 2005 states a person is unable to make a decision if they can't understand information relevant to decision or retain the information long enough to make a decision.
Anyone over the age of 18 can ask a relative or close friend to be an attorney even if they are well.
If you are looking for professional advice to appoint an attorney call Collings Solicitors on 0161 928 5558 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you as soon as possible.
