20% reduction in LPA fees
At Rogers & Norton we appreciate that some clients may require a little extra care, attention and support when making decisions. It may be making a Will; the death of a loved one; a Lasting Power of Attorney (“LPA”); thoughts of giving away their home, or just making sure that everything is in order for their nearest and dearest.
As we live longer, the incidence of strokes, dementia and loss of mental capacity is becoming more prevalent. The number of people over the age of 85 is expected to double in the next 25 years and the number of people over 100 has increased by 70% in the last decade. Therefore more assistance may be required from family and friends with both financial and health matters.
We all hope and expect to age without facing any of these difficult issues, but nevertheless a few simple planning meetings with the relevant professionals, will help ensure that things go as smoothly as they can.
When it comes to seeking out legal services in this area, it is important to find experienced solicitors you can trust. Working with a reputable lawyer, such as a member of SFE, will ensure that you have all the legal documents in place to get you what you have planned for and that you have considered the pitfalls that may face you in later life and how to avoid them if possible.
An LPA can be vital in achieving this as it enables you to nominate people to make decisions on your behalf if you become unable to. There are two types: one covering financial decisions and the other covering your health and welfare. You may find that you want both.
Without an LPA, if you lose mental capacity to make decisions, you would have no control over who ends up making decisions for you. The process to enable someone to help make those decisions on your behalf is also significantly more expensive for you and cumbersome and time consuming for your loved ones.
We passionately believe in the importance of LPAs as a way of planning for a secure future and have decided to promote this by offering a 20% reduction in the fees we charge until the end of the year.
