Hands up if you don't have a power of attorney. That'll be me then.
Reading this blog by my colleague Dara Kinloch is a timely reminder of why it is important at any age, and why I shouldn't be waiting until I need one to get one.
Many think powers of attorney are for people who are older (or richer!), but, as Dara advises, that's not the case.
There is a fairly common misconception that powers of attorney are only for the elderly and that you put one in place if you’re not well.
