Powers of Attorney

Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA’s) were introduced by the Mental Capacity Act 2005 from 1st October 2007 and replaced the old style Enduring Power of Attorney.  There are two different types of LPA’s namely; one for Property and Financial affairs and one for Health and Welfare.

An LPA is a legal document that allows you to give one or more persons (known as ‘attorneys’) to make decisions on their behalf in advance of losing mental capacity.  If a person does not have the mental capacity to make an LPA the involvement of the Court of Protection is required.

Please note that this company can only assist with the Property + Financial Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney.
