Powers of Attorney
Powers of Attorney are an important tool to help our financial and welfare matters to continue if we find ourselves unable to make decisions. If you are unable to make clear decisions, whether this is due to an illness or for some other reason, a family member will not automatically be allowed to make decisions for you. The law in Scotland does not provide for this. Instead, if you wish for someone to make decisions regarding your finances and personal welfare you need to sign and register a power of attorney. This will allow the person named to name decisions for you when you need them most.
At Khan Law we are committed to assisting you with your power of attorney. For some of our clients this is the first time that they have instructed a solicitor, however, we will ensure that we explain the process in full to you to make your customer journey as smooth as possible. We will discuss funding options with you so that you are clear on how much things will cost. There are no hidden fees.

This will depend on the type of Power of Attorney you require. We are normally able to offer this as a Fixed Fee.
A fixed fee is a set amount that is charged for any work carried out. If you are provided with a fixed fee, and you accept, you are only required to pay the fixed fee amount and will not be asked to pay anything more. Provided your instructions remain within the scope of the work agreed at the outset.
Your power of attorney ends on your death. If you have named someone as your attorney – to carry out your decision-making in the event of incapacity, this attorney will cease to have any powers over your estate once you have died. A power of attorney is not a substitute for a will.
