18/07/2011 - Fixed Fee Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA)
Gill Akaster LLP are pleased to announce a new fixed fee for LPAs.

The increasingly aged population and higher rates of debilitating conditions, for example, dementia and Alzheimer’s, weighs heavily on the community, individual carers and family members. Unfortunately, we all know that an accident and/or illness can affect any one of us, at any age and without warning.

Looking after elderly relatives or a close one, who has been subject to an accident or other illness, is one area of this ever increasing social problem. In the unfortunate event of losing mental capacity, you will need help and support with your property and financial affairs and your health and welfare.

By making a LPA, you can ensure that your affairs are safe guarded by the people you trust and rely on, while you are still in a position to make decisions for yourself.

Gill Akaster LLP will prepare your LPA for a fixed fee of £295 plus VAT. Your LPA needs to be registered with the Court, before your Attorneys are able to act on your behalf. This will avoid any future delays and ensure your affairs are in order now. Have your LPA prepared and registered for an inclusive fee of £595 plus VAT plus the court registration fee.

There are two types of LPAs, one relating to your property and financial affairs and the other relating to your health and welfare.

The importance of correct advice when considering making a LPA is essential. Gill Akaster LLP offer expert advice in the preparation and registration of LPAs.

Contact our Wills, Trust and Tax Team on 01752 203500 who are available to help with any questions you may have.
