Thu 12 September 2019 What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document which allows you (the donor) to appoint someone you trust (the attorney) to act on your behalf if you become physically or mentally unwell through an illness or old age.

There are two types of LPA:

You can also give express permissions in your LPA allowing your attorney(s) to make decisions on your behalf relating to life-sustaining treatment.

If you do not have an LPA in place and you become unable to manage your own affairs, your loved ones may need to make an application to the Court of Protection to manage your affairs for you.
