Useful documents during COVID-19

General Powers of Attorney

A General Power of Attorney is particularly useful in the current climate where Lasting Powers of Attorney registrations can potentially take several weeks. If a client has not authorised a person to act on their behalf and they become incapacitated – due to COVID-19 or otherwise – there may be significant difficulty in managing their affairs for them without first getting a court order. Indeed, a spouse may not even be able to operate a joint bank account to access mortgage payments if they are not authorised by the joint signatory to act on their behalf in case of incapacitation.  We have put together a fact sheet with more useful information. 

We ran a webinar looking at GPAs, outlining why clients should consider a GPA in tandem with an LPA when they make their Will and demonstrated how quick and easy it is to create one in Arken Professional.

Advance Decisions

Advance Decisions specify your clients' wishes directly to a medical professional. You can access a fact sheet with more information or watch our webinar on how to draft an Advance Decision for your clients, including the different types available and why it is so important for clients to make these binding instructions directly to their medical professionals.

Webinars

Business Continuity during COVID-19

This webinar goes through ways in which you can help your clients during this time without the need to visit them, how you can communicate this to them sensitively and also how you can use technology to help in taking instructions remotely.

It will cover the range of recommended documents, how to market to clients sensitively, who may be the most in need of documents at this time, remote working options, security, online Wills and Arken.legal tools to support in the short term.
