Lasting Power of Attorney Solicitors

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) gives you, or a member of your family, the power to assign another person or persons the authority to make decisions on your behalf. These decisions may relate to ongoing care requirements or property and financial affairs.

There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney: ‘health and welfare’  and ‘property and financial affairs’ . For more information on either, follow the relevant link.

Who can make a Lasting Power of Attorney?

To make a Lasting Power of Attorney you must be over the age of 18 and have sufficient mental capacity to make the document. It is not possible to make a Lasting Power of Attorney on another person’s behalf. If you have any queries regarding the law and mental capacity, speak with one of our solicitors.

Why make a Lasting Power of Attorney?

Should you become unable to make decisions about your own affairs, whether due to mobility issues, absence from the UK or loss of mental capacity for a period of time, an LPA will ensure there is a person you trust legally capable of making those decisions for you.
