Powers of Attorney

A Power of Attorney enables you to appoint others to deal with your affairs (both financial and welfare) during your lifetime. Our specialists can explain the different types of Powers of Attorney that are available to you and advise you which best fits your requirements. It may be that you want someone to manage your affairs for a short period, whilst you are unable to yourself, for example because you are overseas. Alternatively, it may be that you want to put in place some future protection in case you become unable to manage your affairs through loss of capacity, whether as a result of illness or accident. A Power of Attorney can only be made whilst you still retain the capacity to do so, and can save much difficulty in the future. If a Power of Attorney is not made before the loss of capacity an application can be made to the Office of the Public Guardian.

We can offer guidance and advice on:

  • Making a General Power of Attorney
  • Making a Lasting Power of Attorney for Property and Financial Affairs
  • Making a Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare
  • Registering a Lasting Power of Attorney
  • Registering an existing Enduring Power of Attorney
  • Revoking a Power of Attorney
  • Assisting Attorneys with the administration of the affairs of the person for whom they have power of attorney
  • Assisting Attorneys with applications relating to the affairs of the person for whom they have power of attorney
  • Making a Living Will

Our team would be happy to meet with you at any of our offices, or where necessary they can visit you at home.

  • Chloe, we just want to take this opportunity to thank you. There are not enough words to describe just how amazingly you have handled this whole process for us. We can’t thank you enough for supporting us through what has been a challenging few months!!

  • Hello Mr Baker and Matthew

    I wanted to say thank you for the professionalism, consideration and efficiency with which you dealt with my house sale kind regards

  • I asked Sharon to look into carrying out some debt collection and from the very first communication, Sharon took away all the stress and hassle which this situation can bring. Sharon kept me fully informed with what was going on and carried out the work in a professional yet personable manner. It was great when Sharon told me all the debt had been collected with late payment interest added and for me, it was a stress and hassle free experience and I would highly recommend Sharon’s services.

  • May I thank you for all your care and hard work. In all matters you proved to be most helpful in what was a most difficult and at times trying set of circumstances.

    Keep up the good work, thank you again.

  • I wanted to say a huge thanks to Wendy for the help and assistance she and her colleagues have given me over the past few years, on a personal and professional level.
    Wendy is at the top of her game and has a wealth of experience which can only be gained through proven work experience. The legal advice you get is second to none.
    I have used Wendy’s services for the buy out of my previous business partner, a commercial bad debt and the conveyancing of a property sale and purchase. Throughout all of my dealings with Wendy, she has been professional and treated my cases with the upmost priority and has always had my best interests at heart.
    Thanks again Wendy for all of your help and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services.

  • I just wanted to send you a message of thanks for your work over these past 4 and a half years. It has certainly been a tough time period in my life, but your support has made things so much easier. Knowing that there were people who understand me, my needs and most importantly believed in me means everything to me, i really can’t thank you enough. The case was certainly not a straight forward one, but you fought my corner at every step. Thank you.
    I would also like to thank Alison as well for making me feel relaxed on the day should i have had to go into court. I would have gone in with 100% confidence and that could have made all the difference on the day. In the end it wasn’t necessary and we got the result. For me it was never about the money, it was about the effect it was going to have on my future life and career, so the result is a good one.
    I would not hesitate for a second in recommending Sills & Betteridge

  • Thank you for all your help with this matter and the efficient manner in which my case has been handled. As I am sure you will appreciate, it was quite distressing and stressful to have had a second accident in such a short time frame but the way in which you handled the case and provided me with advice and kept me updated throughout has been very reassuring and I have nothing but praise and recommendation for both you and your company.

  • I can only thank you for your hard work and exceptional talent in the progress you have made in my case. I honestly cant thank you enough
