What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?

A Lasting Power of Attorney, also known as an LPA is a document that allows you to appoint one or more people that you trust to act or make decisions on your behalf in the event that you lose physical or mental capacity. The people that you appoint are known as attorneys, and they must always include you as much as possible in the decision making and always act in your best interest.

There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney:

  • Health and Welfare
  • Property and Financial Affairs

Many assume their loved ones would automatically be able to make decisions on their behalf should something unforeseen happen, yet often this is not the case. Injury, serious illness etc can cause a loss of mental capacity, temporarily or permanently. If that should happen…

The state decides how and where you live

Bank accounts and finances could be frozen

Doctors could ignore your wishes

It would not be possible to sell your house

Family members would need a costly court order
