My Power of Attorney in Ayrshire
There may come a time when you can’t manage your own affairs or look after yourself. You might want to give someone else the ability to deal with your health or money and property matters if you have an accident or get an illness, for example. But many companies and banks won’t discuss your business with anyone except you. This is where a Power of Attorney comes in.
A Power of Attorney lets you choose someone you know and trust to make decisions for you about:
- · Your health
- · Your money and property
- · Both of these
You can choose more than one person. Whoever you choose is called your “attorney.” Your “attorney” doesn’t need to be a solicitor – that’s just what they are called. He or she could be a family member, a friend or a solicitor. You can also have a mix of people – a family member and a solicitor acting together for example.
The time to set up a Power of Attorney is now, when you can take your time and choose someone you trust to look after you and your affairs.
