Lasting Powers of Attorney - F.A.Q's

What does a Lasting Power of Attorney cover?

There are two types of LPA , each will perform a separate function.

The first is property and financial affairs, this allows your chosen attorney's ( normally your spouse and children) to make decisions about money and property.

This can include paying essential bills, collecting any pensions, organising utilities, collecting or dealing with any benefits or dealing with any tax affairs.

If you don't appoint an attorney whilst you are of sound mind, your family could incur high solicitor fees and court costs, putting plans in place now with your LPAs will make things much easier for your loved ones to look after you and reduce the risk of having to pay high costs.

The 2nd is a Heath and Welfare LPA, this legal document allows your chosen attorney's to make decisions on your daily routine, for example washing, dressing and eating, medical care and what type of treatment you receive and by whom, and if necessary which care home you will live in.
