A Lasting Power of Attorney allows you to give the people you trust the power to make decisions on your behalf in the event that you become physically or mentally incapable of doing so.

There are different types of Lasting Powers of Attorney depending on what areas of your life you would like an attorney to have control of.

Our highly experienced team are capable of guiding you through this complicated area of law and helping you to decide which affairs to appoint an attorney in respect of.  We will ensure that your Lasting Power of Attorney is appropriately registered with the Office of the Public Guardian.

OUR TEAM

Our Private Client Department is experienced in delivering high quality work in all matters relating to wills and estate administration and there are currently two lawyers within the department who may work on your matter. Regardless of who works on your matter, they will be supervised by Alexandria Sarah Cartledge who heads up the department.

Alexandria Sarah Cartledge – Company Director

Alexandria heads up the Private Client Department and is a Solicitor with over four years’ experience in private client work, specialising in wills and probate. Alexandria has been working in this area since shortly after she qualified and has helped well over a thousand individuals and families both locally and nationally.

Alexandria qualified as a Solicitor in 2013 after gaining a degree in Law from the University of Hull. She went on to study at the University of Law in York and completed her training contract in Hull. She joined Murray Hills Solicitors Limited in 2014 and became a Company Director in 2015.

Lasting Powers of Attorney

One Lasting Power of Attorney for yourself

We can assist you with obtaining a lasting power of attorney (LPA) for either property and financial affairs or health and welfare.

In either case, you will pay:  £480.00 inclusive of VAT in respect of our fees; and  £82.00, at most, in respect of the government’s registration fee.

Whilst only £480.00 of your monies will be paid to us, we will handle the payment to the government to ensure a smoother process.

This will cover the cost of:  Meeting with you to take your instructions;  Advising you on all of the options available and the implications of each;  Preparing your LPA and sending it for your approval;  Meeting with you and your attorney or attorneys for execution;  Acting as your Certificate Provider and Witness for the LPA;  Writing to those you choose to notify of your intention to register your LPA;  Sending your executed LPA to the government for registration; and  Sending you your registered LPA.

On average, this will take approximately 3 to 5 months from beginning to end.

Our prices do not cover the cost of a disputed application to register an LPA and we would be grateful if you would telephone us on 01262 672249 to either obtain a fixed fee price for this over the telephone or to arrange a free 30 minute no-obligation appointment to discuss your individual circumstances.
