Lasting Power of Attorney

How it works.

Following a face-to-face meeting or a telephone call, we can assist with putting a Health Lasting Power of Attorney and/or a Property and Finance Lasting Power of Attorney in place. 

Our Lasting Power of Attorney services cover Wiltshire, with offices in Devizes, Bath and Trowbridge, so you can always pop in and see us in person.

What information do I need?


In order to complete the Lasting Power of Attorney, we would need the following information:

  • Personal details: full name, address, date of birth
  • Attorney details: the people you choose to make decisions for you are called your ‘attorneys’. Your attorneys don’t need special legal knowledge or training. They should be people you trust and know well. Common choices include your husband, wife or partner, son or daughter, or your best friend.
  • Wishes: when and what decisions you would like your attorneys to be able to make on your behalf.

How long will it take?

The appointment, whether that is a face-to-face meeting or telephone call, can be booked at a convenient time for you and will take as little as 15 minutes.

When will it be ready?

Following the appointment, your draft Lasting Power of Attorney will be sent to you within seven working days.

How much will it cost?

Our fees for preparing the Lasting Power of Attorney are £250 each. However, if you would like to put two Lasting Power of Attorneys in place at the same time, our fee will be £350 for both*. If we are writing your will at the same time, discounts are available.

* In addition, the Office of Public Guardian charge a registration fee unless exemptions apply.
