Lasting Power of Attorney
What are Lasting Powers of Attorney?
Lasting Powers of Attorney (“LPA”) is a document under which you appoint someone to look after your affairs for you.
What are the different types?
There are two types of LPA, one relating only to financial decisions, similar in effect to the old Enduring Power of Attorney and the second relating to health and care, which was new in 2007.
Who can make a LPA?
Anyone aged 18 or over, with the capacity to do so, can make an LPA appointing one or more Attorneys to make decisions on their behalf.
