power of attorneyPOWER OF ATTORNEY

A Power of Attorney allows you to appoint another person, or persons, whom you trust, to look after your finances and make decisions about your welfare and care should you become incapable of doing so.

The award winning team at Moir & Sweeney Litigation can prepare Powers of Attorney documents to nominate someone you trust to deal with your finances and welfare in the future if you become unable to manage your own affairs due to ill-health or incapacity.

This is an important decision to make because of the nature and extent of the powers granted, which is why we will take the time to discuss your requirements and full go thrugh and explain the documents involved to you.

The most common Power of Attorney document is an 'Enduring and Welfare' Power of Attorney. This covers a wide range of financial pwoer from banking and property, gifting, and daily administrative decisions. It also provides for the decisions regarding residence, medical care, clothing, and general welfare issues.

This can be a particularly complex area of the law, and we pride ourselves on our ability to explain the process in a straightforward way, so that you fully understand what you are agreeing to.

We can also advise those appointed under a Power of Attorney of their responsiibilities and explain the requirements of the Adults and Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 and how this has been interpreted by the courts.
