Power of Attorney (LPA's)

Lasting Powers of Attorney are important legal documents which allow you to appoint someone whom you trust to make decisions for you, should you be unable to.

Legal experts in creating Lasting Power of Attorney.

There are two types of Lasting Powers of Attorney, one for financial decisions and one for health and welfare decisions. Most clients put both in place.

Lasting Powers of Attorney are arguably as important as making a Will when putting your affairs in order. It allows you to appoint someone who you trust implicitly to make decisions for you, should you be unable to. In the absence of a Lasting Power of Attorney, even your next of kin will not be able to escape data protection laws to speak to your bank or speak to your doctors to refuse treatment on your behalf. If they need to speak for you, they would need to apply to the Court of Protection which can be costly and take a long time to obtain the court order which authorises the family member to act.

LPA Additional Information

Lasting Powers of Attorney replaced Enduring Powers of Attorney from 1st October 2007. However, existing Enduring Powers of Attorney that were in place before that date are still valid.

The registration for Enduring Powers of Attorney are different and they only need to be registered if the donor is becoming or has become mentally incapable. If you are an Attorney under an Enduring Power of Attorney, we can guide you through the registration process and in most cases, can deal with this on your behalf for a fixed fee of £500 plus VAT and disbursements.

Ordinary Powers of Attorney are also useful documents for transactional matters such as conveyancing or business matters if you are temporarily unavailable. They can also be granted by executors to appoint someone to administer an estate on their behalf.
