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 make an LPA which gives your attorney/s authority in relation to your property and financial affairs. You can also make an LPA which gives your attorney/s authority in relation to your health and care decisions (although this type of LPA can only be used if you lack 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 patrice.lawrence@tvedwards.com or calling us on 020 3440 8000.

Frequently Asked Questions

An LPA is a document which you can make while you have capacity appointing people you trust to manage your affairs in the event that you are no longer able or willing to manage them yourself.

Anyone who is over 18 and has capacity to make decisions for themselves.

If we have any concerns about capacity we will advise that a medical capacity assessment is undertaken by the person who would like to make the LPA.
