Lasting Power of Attorney

A legal document that allows you to appoint someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf if you lose the ability to manage your affairs through an accident or ill health.

Without a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in place, if you lose capacity your family would need to apply to the Court of Protection, which is a time-consuming and costly process. There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney, Property and Financial or Health and Welfare.

What is a Property and Financial LPA?

This allows you to choose one or more persons to make decisions about your money or property on your behalf. This includes fulfilling important tasks such as paying bills, writing cheques, transferring money, receiving salaries, arranging for the upkeep of your property or selling your home.

What is a Health and Welfare LPA?

Allows you to appoint one of more persons to make decisions regarding your medical care, moving into a care home, your daily routine (e.g. eating, taking medication) and refusing life-sustaining treatment. Unlike the Property and Financial Affairs LPA it can only be used once you have lost the ability to make your own decisions.
