Legal Chat Radio Interview - Lasting Powers of Attorney with Heidi Shearman
What would happen to your finances and your affairs if you were suddenly unable to make decisions?
It could be something serious and life-limiting like dementia, or it could be an unforeseen accident or illness that puts you in hospital for weeks or even months. Who would take of your financial decisions and make sure everything is in order and your wishes are fulfilled?
Nobody likes to think about these scenarios, but it is important that we do. Without an LPA even your loved ones (spouses/children) would have no automatic right to deal with your affairs!
An LPA enables you to appoint people you trust to manage your affairs should the worst occur and you lose capacity. It is the best way to make sure everything is taken care of, so you and your family don't have to worry about things.
