Lasting Powers of Attorney
What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA’s) is a document which allows you to select another person, or more than one person, to make decisions on your behalf in relation to your Property and Financial Affairs, or your Health and Personal Welfare, if you become incapable of doing so yourself.
The two types of LPAS include:
- Property and Finance
- Health and Welfare
Why Make a Lasting Power of attorney?
Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) let you choose who should manage your affairs and make decisions on your behalf if you lose mental capacity. Allowing you complete control over whom who trust to ensure your wishes are adhered to while you are still alive and looked after long after you have died.
If you lose mental capacity without an LPA, your loved ones will need to apply to the Court of Protection for a ‘Deputy’ to be appointed to manage your affairs. This can be a lengthy and complex process, causing further distress for your loved ones.
