Lasting Powers of Attorney Legal Advice

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a vital legal document which appoints a person of trust who will make decisions on your behalf, regarding property, financial or health affairs, at a time in the future when you may no longer be able to make those decisions yourself.

The specialist solicitors here at Lanyon Bowdler have a wealth of knowledge and experience regarding Lasting Power of Attorney law, and will be able to guide you through the process in a sensitive, caring manner.

We will help both the Donor (i.e. you) and Attorney (the person you are appointing) understand and complete the paperwork, as well explaining the legal ramifications of such an undertaking.

What Is A Lasting Power of Attorney

There are two different forms of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA):

Property and Financial Affairs LPA: In this case, the Donor chooses an Attorney whom they trust to make decisions regarding their assets, property or financial affairs. Your Attorney will then be able to look after your property and financial affairs while you still have mental capacity, as well as in the event you lack the mental capacity. For instance, it could be easier for you to give someone else the power to pay your bills or collect your benefits or other income.

Health and Welfare LPA: In this case, the Attorney is able to decide regarding the Donor’s future health and welfare, should they lack the mental or physical capacity to do so.

Our solicitors will advise you on which LPA is most appropriate for you, and guide you the whole process from start to finish.
