Powers of Attorney at Fraser Dawbarns LLP

Fraser Dawbarns are able to assist you with Powers of Attorney, Court of Protection and the Appointment of Deputies


Powers of Attorney


Putting in place a Power of Attorney enables a person chosen by you to deal with your affairs in circumstances where you are not able to. This may simply be because you are going to be out of the country for an extended period of time and documents will need to be signed during that period. Alternatively you may wish to have a Power of Attorney in place in case you are not able to make decisions about your affairs because of incapacitating illness or loss of mental capacity.

Deciding to give someone the power to make decisions on your behalf is an important one and we at Fraser Dawbarns are able to provide you with expert guidance and advice in reaching your decisions. If you would like help putting in place a Power of Attorney then please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss how we might assist you.


Court of Protection and Appointment of Deputies


In those circumstances where a person loses capacity but had not previously put in place a Lasting Power of Attorney or one of the older style Enduring Powers of Attorney then usually the only way in which another person can take control of their affairs is to be appointed as a Deputy.


At Fraser Dawbarns solicitors we are able to provide comprehensive advice on the steps that need to be taken in making an application to the Court of Protection and guiding you through the process.
