Power of Attorney – Lasting Power of Attorney
Suppose you are unable to make decisions for yourself due to mental or physical incapacity; In that case, a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) allows you to appoint someone you trust, to carry out your wishes.
Having an LPA in place puts you in control of affairs, allowing you to decide precisely how much authority your Attorney would have. And whether you want to impose any limitations.
There are two types of lasting power of Attorney. They are:
Property and Financial Affairs
Allows you to nominate people you trust to make crucial decisions on your behalf in the future. It also gives your Attorney the authority to deal with buying and selling your property, your bills, bank accounts, financial assets, pensions, and even investments.
Personal Health and Welfare
This type of LPA comes into effect when you have lost capacity and are not able to make decisions for yourself. It covers all aspects of your healthcare and personal welfare. Including controlling where you may live, medical administration, and life-sustaining treatment, should you require care.
You can choose to make one type of Power of Attorney or both.
How to choose your attorney
The role of Attorney involves a great deal of power and responsibility. Therefore it is essential to think carefully about who you choose. You must be able to trust them to make decisions in your best interests. Also, you can choose to have between one and nine attorneys. You can also appoint a replacement attorney who can step in if your existing Attorney is no longer able to act for you. Besides, your Attorney can be anyone 18 or over, for example:
- your husband, wife or partner
- a relative
- a friend
