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.

Our team would be happy to meet with you at any of our offices, or where necessary they can visit you at home.
Thank you so much for today. You did an amazing job and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to represent me! I’m so happy that it went that way and that I’ve been granted the non molestation order. I can now relax a little bit and actually live my life without having the fear of my ex partner in the back of my mind. Thank you so much once again, I’ll always be grateful for you and your team at Sills & Betteridge. You all did an excellent job and handled my situation perfectly.
Thank you for the professional way that my divorce was handled; a very painful time which was eased by the ‘fuss-free’ approach from yourself and Leanne. Will certainly recommend.
I would personally not use any other solicitor – Andrew Durkan has been very professional and understanding in the completion of my will. Highly Recommended.
I am very happy. Thank you for all your help. I hope to be alright for the future now. Kind regards
I wanted to email to highlight how helpful and efficient Matthew Daurge has been during the purchase and sale of our property. This is this first time Mathew has acted on our behalf and he really has made the process run very smoothly and quickly. Because of this we will definitely be asking him to act on our behalf with our future projects.
Mathew presents as being extremely efficient and his communication skills have been excellent. He has always done what he has said he is going to do without us having to keep following this up. Mathew was always very good at keeping us updated and is very approachable. I have work with many solicitors both on a professional level and personal and I am yet to come across a solicitor that has been as helpful as Mathew.
Mathew is a credit to your company. So I just wanted to highlight his good practice and hope you will pass on this positive feedback as it is much deserved.
We remain most grateful for all your help and support in bringing this matter to a satisfactory conclusion. No one could have done more, and we think the outcome is not only a credit to your skills in this area of law, but also to the care and attention that you have taken on our behalf
