Lasting power of attorney

The importance of an Lasting Power of Attorney cannot be underestimated for your peace of mind and that of your loved ones to cover any future crisis.

A Lasting Power of Attorney (or LPA) is a legal document that allows someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf at a time in the future when you no longer wish to make those decisions, or if you no longer have the mental capacity to do so.

You are in control

Make a Lasting Power of Attorney now and ensure that decisions regarding your property and financial affairs and/or your health and welfare will be carried out as you would wish, by someone you trust, should you be unable to make such decisions for yourself in the future

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a powerful legal document that you (the Donor) make to appoint a person (or persons), that you trust (an Attorney) to make decisions on your behalf, about things such as your property and financial affairs or your health and welfare at a time in the future when you may lack the mental capacity to do so, or do not feel able to do so yourself. An LPA puts you firmly in control of your affairs as you decide exactly how much authority your Attorney has.

There are legal safeguards to make sure that your wishes are carried out and the person acting on your behalf recognises the seriousness of their role. You can get an LPA drawn up at any time while you have the mental capacity to do so. Having an LPA puts you in control of decisions that may eventually be made on your behalf.

The importance of an Lasting Power of Attorney cannot be underestimated for your peace of mind and that of your loved ones to cover any future crisis.
