    Lasting Power of Attorney

    A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a document that can only be used whilst you are still alive, it gives someone you trust the ability to act on your behalf in matters relating to your;

    • Health & Welfare
    • Property and Affairs

    There are two different types of  LPA, one that deals with each of the above.

    You can have just one, either one or you can have one of each which is better, the more common one is the one that deals with your Property & Affairs as it’s the one that allows someone to pay your bills etc. if you are unable to do so due to mental incapacity or physical incapacity. However, more and more people are creating them both as the Health & Welfare LPA is vital to enable your nominated Attorney’s to talk to health care professionals, medical staff and Local Authority staff about your care and wellbeing.

    For the Property and Affairs LPA we need to know the full details, including full names, addresses and dates of birth, plus the relationships (e.g. brother, sister, son, daughter) the following:

    1. Yourself
    2. Your chosen attorneys (between 1 and 4 acting together or separately)
    3. A Certificate Provider (Someone you’ve known for more than 2 years and can verify that you are currently of sound mind)

    You can call this information in to us or email it to us (details here) and we’ll be able to produce the necessary documents to complete the process. You will then need to get the documents signed in front of the right witnesses (we’ll tell you who that can be) and then register the LPA with the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG). The OPG currently charge £82 per Lasting Power of Attorney per person for this service.
