A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document which allows you (the donor) to appoint one or more people (attorneys) to make decisions on your behalf.
It is particularly useful to have an LPA in place if you have health issues which may impact on your ability to deal with your affairs in the future.
There are two types of LPA:
You can grant an LPA which gives the attorney authority regarding the donor’s property and financial decisions. You can also grant an LPA which gives the attorney authority regarding the donor’s health and care decisions (although this type of LPA can only be used when the donor lacks capacity).
Our team can advise and assist you with completing and submitting the LPA forms with the Office of the Public Guardian.
If you require our advice or assistance with regard to creating an LPA, please contact our team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us on 020 3440 8000.
