Lasting Power of Attorney

What is a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)? 

A Lasting Power of Attorney or LPA is a legal document that allows you to designate someone to make decisions you wish on your behalf. The chosen individual has the ability to control your finances for you in the future should you no longer be able to make decisions for yourself.

Who can create an LPA?

Anyone over the age of 18 and has the mental capacity to do so can make a Lasting Power of Attorney. Unfortunately, once a person has lost mental capacity, they are unable to appoint an LPA. If the person’s family or friends then want to be able to make certain decisions on their behalf, they will need to apply for deputy ship.

What is a Property and Financial affairs LPA? 

This LPA provides your attorney with the power to make decisions about your money and property, including managing bank or building society accounts, paying bills, collecting a pension and, if required, selling your home. Once registered with the Office of the Public Guardian, it can be used immediately, or held in readiness until required.

Exactly what are the benefits of making an LPA?

- It can be reassuring to know that, if you are unable making a decision on your own in the future, the trusted person you choose will make these decisions for you.

- Making an LPA makes certain that the person you want to make decisions for you will certainly be able to do so. This protects against a stranger, or someone you might not trust, from having this power.

- Making an LPA now will make things more comfortable for your family and friends in the future. It gets more expensive and time-consuming the later you leave it as it is difficult for them to get the authority to carry out decisions on your behalf when you are unable to give it.

- Making an LPA could start discussions with your family members or others about just what you intend to occur in the future.

What is a Health and Welfare LPA?  

This provides your attorney the power to make decisions about your daily routine (eg dressing, washing, or eating), medical care, moving into a care home and life-sustaining medical treatment. It can only be used if you are unable to make your own decisions.
