We never know what life will throw at us and as we get older, having plans in place for the future can provide clarity and certainty.
A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a legal document that allows you to appoint one or more people (known as ‘attorneys') to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf. This enables you to have greater control over what will happen should you be diagnosed with an illness or are involved in an accident which leaves you unable to make decisions.
A Lasting Power of Attorney protects your interests - whatever your circumstances, speak to one of our friendly solicitors today to find out whether a Lasting Power of Attorney could benefit you and your family.
An LPA gives someone else the right to make important decisions and comes into effect if you are not able to do so yourself.
There are two types of Lasting Powers of Attorney:
- Health and Welfare, this covers decisions that need to be made regarding your health and care and could include decisions involving your daily care, including your diet.
- Property and Financial Affairs, this includes decisions about your finances and property.
You can make a Lasting Power of Attorney for one or both areas depending on your needs. It is important to consider a Lasting Power of Attorney because unfortunately, no one can predict the future.
