Reduced prices on Lasting Powers of Attorney documents
Posted on: 18/11/2020
The Advice Team at Dorset’s disability charity, Diverse Abilities, is offering a reduced fee for producing Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) documents with telephone appointments.
By creating the LPA over the phone, clients are able to manage the call in the comfort and security of their own home, and with the support of family members if required by placing the phone on loudspeaker.
The purpose of an LPA is to ensure that someone you trust has authority to manage your affairs if you are no longer able to. They are available for both health and welfare decisions, and property and financial decisions.
Once an appointment has been booked, one of the charity’s advisors will call to discuss the purpose and implications of LPAs and help make the decision for which is right for you, or whether both kinds are suited to your needs and personal circumstances.
Elaine Ewing, Advice service manager, commented: “We’re pleased that we’re able to offer this service at a reduced price at the moment through telephone appointments, as it’s such an important thing to think about, not just for yourself, but for your family members as well.
“We aim to make the process as simple as possible, and we don’t just assist those with disabilities, we’re here to help anyone who needs advice and guidance.”
Diverse Abilities’ Advice Team will manage the necessary signing of documents by post and are available to discuss the progress throughout the process, as well as sending your documentation to the Office of the Public Guardian for registration.
The Advice Team can also refer its clients to a free will drafting service, including wills with trusts.
Visit diverseabilities.org.uk/advice for further details on the service or call 0300 330 5514 on weekdays between 9am and 1.30pm.
