Lasting Powers of Attorney
Planning your affairs in life can be just as important as making a will.
All of us need to consider that there might come a time when we can no longer look after own affairs on a daily basis.
We can help plan for this with a Lasting Power of Attorney.
Using a Lasting Power of Attorney you can appoint someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf as your ‘attorney’.
You can create two types of LPA:
Property and Affairs LPA
This allows you to choose someone to make decisions about finance and how to manage your money on your behalf.
Personal Welfare LPA
This covers decisions about your healthcare and welfare. For example where you reside and consent to medical treatment on your behalf. Because of the importance of such matters the attorney can only act if you lack sufficent capacity and the Lasting Power of Attorney is registered.
