A lasting power of attorney is a legal document that lets you choose trusted people to make decisions on your behalf. An LPA is mainly used if you don’t have the mental capacity to make decisions yourself but it can also be used with your consent while you still have capacity.
I can guide you through the two types of Lasting Power of Attorney and help you to set in place the measures that you require to ensure that your personal affairs can be dealt with should you ever lose capacity.
We are all at risk of the unknown. How would you pay your bills, gain access to your bank accounts, pension or even sell your house if you lost capacity as a result of a stroke, accident or dementia?
You can contact me for a no obligation chat about putting in place an LPA.
Once an LPA has been completed it cannot be used until it has been registered at the Office of the Public Guardian. I can deal with the application for registration for you. Registration normally takes approximately six weeks.
