Lasting Power of Attorney
As you near the end of your life, or when a change to your mental and physical health suddenly impacts your capacity, it’s important to assign a trusted family member or friend to help manage your estate and affairs.
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document which outlines who this person is, and what they have control over should you lose capacity.
- Property and Financial Affairs LPA. This allows the persons appointed to make financial decisions on your behalf, such as paying bills, dealing with banks and investments, arranging and collecting benefits, and selling a property.
- Health and Welfare LPA. This allows the persons appointed to make personal decisions on your behalf regarding care issues, including where you live and specifying your wishes regarding life-sustaining treatment.
Creating a Lasting Power of Attorney while you are fit and well is a simple and efficient process, and we can help with every step.
An LPA is an insurance policy to protect you in any of these instances; you hope it will never be needed but if it is, it will provide you and your loved ones invaluable peace of mind.
Creating a Lasting Power of Attorney while you are fit and well means that if you do lose capacity, your chosen attorneys can step in and take over your affairs quickly and easily.
Take action today and let us help you to appoint the attorneys that you want to manage your affairs in the future.
