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.

What type of LPAs are there?

There are two types of LPA: 

Lasting Power of Attorney (Property and Financial Affairs) and

Lasting Power of Attorney (Health and Welfare)


Property and Financial Affairs LPA

This is where decisions need to be taken about your finances (managing your bank accounts and collecting any benefits) and property (selling your home).

A property 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.

A health 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. 

The Benefits of Making an LPA

  • Peace of mind – that the people you want to make decisions about your finances and welfare will be able to do so.
  • Lower cost and more efficient – The alternative route for individuals to get the authority to act on your behalf is through the Court of Protection which will be much more difficult, time-consuming and expensive.
