An LPA is a document whereby certain powers are given by an individual (the “donor”) to one or more other individuals (“attorney” or “attorneys”) so that they can carry out acts in connection with finances or health and welfare on the donor’s behalf.
This is where decisions need to be taken about your finances (managing your bank accounts and collecting any benefits) and property (selling your home).
and financial affairs LPA can be used as soon as it’s registered, with your
permission. If it is to be used at a later date, then you can decide the
criteria for when this will be.
Health and Welfare LPA
This covers decisions as to where to live, daily care and medical treatment.
and welfare LPA can only be used when you’re unable to make your own decisions.
Making An LPA
You can only make an LPA whilst you have mental capacity. If you lack mental capacity but don’t have a Lasting Power of Attorney in place, then a friend or relative can apply to the Court of Protection to apply to become a Deputy to make decisions on your behalf. However, drawing up an LPA is quicker and cheaper than applying to become a Deputy.
