Lasting Powers of Attorney
What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a formal document where you may appoint a family member, friend or professional (such as a solicitor) to make decisions on your behalf either when you choose to give them this power, or if you become incapable of managing your own affairs.
What are the different types of Lasting Powers of Attorney?
There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney – one that deals with Property & Financial Affairs and another that deals with Health & Welfare issues. They very much cover the areas that their names suggest. One allows your attorneys the scope to manage your money in the bank and, for example, sell your home should this event become necessary. The latter allows them to make important decisions about your health and welfare. Again, for example, this may be regarding where you live, how you are treated in hospital and whether or not you wish to have life-sustaining treatment in the event that you become terminally ill.
When should I make a Lasting Power of Attorney?
Lasting Powers of Attorney should be made when you are considering safeguarding your future. It is never too early!
How do I make a Lasting Power of Attorney?
It is very easy to make a Lasting Power of Attorney as the forms are readily available. However, it is often not the forms that are the hard part – rather it is having the opportunity to discuss your feelings and wishes and how these should be reflected in the form.
