Lasting Power of Attorney

Dealing with money and welfare matters in old age or ill health can be difficult and worrying – perhaps even impossible.

 

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document that lets you choose one or more people you trust to make decisions and act on your behalf in specified circumstances, usually due to ill health or old age. These people become your Attorneys.

Types of LPA

Health & Welfare

A Health and Welfare LPA allows your chosen Attorney(s) to make decisions about things like: your daily routine e.g. what you like to eat and what to wear, medical care, moving into a care home and life-sustaining treatment. This type of lasting power of attorney can only be used when you lose capacity to make your own decisions. It does not allow your attorney(s) to make decisons about your financial affairs.

Property & Financial

A Property and Financial Affairs LPA allows your chosen Attorney(s) to make decisions about your finances and property, if there comes a time when you can’t manage your finances anymore. This can include paying your bills, collecting your income and benefits, or selling your house. However, if you wish to, you can restrict their powers, or place conditions on what they can do.
