Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 15 years experience.
thank you. Your attorneys do not own your property. Attorneys are there in a supporting role. Whilst you have full mental capacity, your attorneys must follow your instructions and not go against you wishes and in fact must not act other than in accordance with your instructions and wishes and they can be personally liable to you if they failed to do so.
If you have appointed attorneys using a lasting power of attorney, then the power will survive even if you lose mental capacity but the attorneys must still about point act in your best interests.
In terms of your Jamaican property, unless you have gifted this way, it would remain your property and if you have been asked to complete a means assessment questionnaire, you should include all your property wherever it may be situated in the world. I hope that answers your question, but please do come back to me if you have any follow-up queries
A pleasure. All the best
