It's never too soon to make a Lasting Power of Attorney for property and financial affairs. Only £82, but go through the official government site - make sure you go for this one, I've looked at others. It's easy to fill out, just have to wait to get it registered - could take up to 6-8 weeks. You don't have to implement it till you can't manage things yourself - link.

I've just had experience with the trouble you can have if you don't get it sorted. This is not just for OAPs as people can have all sorts of things that change in life. Made inquiries with a solicitor to the cost Oh my but it's so easy to do it yourself.

Fully agree, Dougie. Don`t forget POA is only part of it, making a Will is just as important if there are family members with interest in any possible estate. Online might suit some but a good solicitor will put you on the right track, combining POA with the contents of a Will - not cheap, but for me it’s contentment. Thumbs up

You’re not kidding about the price, they also want you to make out two of each, for me and the wife, POA and Will, so they can't take it all off us if one has to go into care. I have a Will but am going to see a solicitor to get it sorted as the first meeting is free. Blush Thumbs up

There are two types of LPOA - one for Health and Welfare, and one for Property and Financial Affairs. Both should be considered.
