A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a document allowing you to appoint somebody of your choice to look after your financial affairs or make decisions about your personal welfare if you become unable to do so yourself.
To make an LPA you must have the mental capacity to understand the document you are signing. It is therefore important to make an LPA well in advance of any loss of capacity, for example through dementia.
The Team can guide you through the process and can assist you with the following:
Preparation of LPAs
Certificate providing and capacity assessments
Registering LPAs with the Office of the Public Guardian
Advance Decisions also known as Living Wills
Registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPAs)
