Lasting Power of Attorney
We offer our clients a fixed fee service in relation to Lasting Powers of Attorney.
Lasting power of attorney is a legal document which allows you to appoint someone you trust, to make decisions about such things as your health care or finances if, in the future, you lack the mental capacity to make those decisions yourself.
There are two very different forms of Lasting Power of Attorneys (LPAs) that can be made:
- An LPA that deals with your financial affairs - LPA (Property and Affairs) which replaces the existing Enduring Power of Attorney. Any Enduring Power of Attorney executed prior to 1st October 2007 will still be valid.
- An LPA that deals with your personal welfare issues - LPA (Personal Welfare). This is a new legal concept although similar to a Living Will or Advance Directive.
