It may be a temporary situation such as being away on holiday or working abroad or you might be thinking of making more long-term plans to appoint someone to help you with your affairs should there come a time in the future when you are unable to deal with matters yourself.
Many people incorrectly assume that if they become unable to manage their affairs that their family or friend will be able to help them. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Being related to someone will not provide the requisite authority.
A Power of Attorney document is relatively inexpensive and it allows you to appoint the people you most trust to deal with your affairs, giving you and your family comfort that should you require help in the future the trusted person will there to help. It must be done while you are of sound mind so it is best to plan ahead and avoid the lengthy and expensive process of a Guardianship Order.
I’d like to thank you for the efforts put in by both of you in all aspects of our house purchase. I am aware it is ‘your jobs’ and what we’ve paid for anyway, but more than that is the fact that you were always available to take/return my calls and got things acted on as needed at the time needed. It has been my first home purchase as you know, and even with the hiccups along the way we feel things have turned out really well with much thanks to your advice and time taken to discuss our options too.
Just a quick note to say thanks for your professional and friendly approach in getting our property sold. This is only the third time I have moved but hands down you have provided the best service. I would have no hesitation in recommending Connell & Connell, and in particular you, in the future.
Linsay and I have been very impressed with the service provided by Connell and Connell.
Niki and I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you to you, Allan and the team for all your help with getting our property onto the market so quickly. I’m sure it would normally take a lot longer than 10 days! Also, we were both delighted when we saw the quality of the pictures and the design of your brochure.
Could not have wished for a better service – your personalities were amazing and you did us proud!
I should like to thank you for all the patient work you did to transfer the property into my name. It was so good to deal with someone who was both thoroughly nice and efficient; both proud qualities in a solicitor. With thanks and very best wishes for the future.
Thanks again for all your hard work – it has made such a difference receiving a professional and friendly service.
Thank you very much to both of you and your property team for all your advice, assistance and care over the past few months in getting my flat on the market and processing the sale. You have all provided an excellent service and made the whole event stress free for us. We are very grateful.
It is very refreshing to find someone so committed to their professionalism and eager to do more than just what is strictly necessary.
