Lasting Power of Attorney explained
What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?
A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a legal document that lets you (the ‘donor’) appoint one or more people (known as ‘attorneys’) to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf.
This gives you more control over what happens to you if you have an accident or an illness and cannot make your own decisions (you ‘lack mental capacity’).
Health & Welfare LPA
A Health and Welfare LPA gives an attorney the power to make decisions about things like:
your daily routine, for example washing, dressing, eating
moving into a care home
It can only be used when you’re unable to make your own decisions.
Property & Finance LPA
A Property and Finance LPA gives an attorney the power to make decisions about money and property for you, for example:
managing a bank or building society account
collecting benefits or a pension
selling your home
It can be used as soon as it’s registered, with your permission.
