A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) 

  • Edit Column
 
  • Edit Text Editor

Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a crucial legal document that allows you to appoint one or more individuals (referred to as “attorneys”) to assist you in making decisions or to make decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated. In England and Wales, the process of creating and registering an LPA involves several steps. Let’s break it down:

Understanding the Types of LPA

  1. Understand the Types of LPA:

    • There are two main types of LPAs:
      • Property and Financial Affairs LPA: This type allows your attorney to handle financial matters on your behalf. They can manage bank accounts, pay bills, and even sell property.
      • Health and Welfare LPA: This LPA covers decisions related to your health and personal welfare. It includes medical treatment choices and care arrangements.
    • You can choose to create one type of LPA or both. Keep in mind that the process differs in Scotland and Northern Ireland1.

Choosing Your Attorneys

  • Selecting trustworthy attorneys is crucial. Consider the following factors:
    • Trustworthiness: Choose someone you implicitly trust.
    • Skills and Availability: Ensure they are capable and willing to act on your behalf.
    • Relationship: While family members are common choices, friends or professional advisors can also be suitable.
  • You can appoint more than one attorney, specifying whether they should act jointly (making decisions together) or jointly and severally (independently or together).

Fill Out the LPA Forms:

LPA FOR HEALTH & WELFARE AFFAIRS
LPA FOR FINANCIAL & PROPERTY AFFAIRS
    • Give us a call and we can complete the forms in the comfort of your own home.

    • The necessary forms are:
      • LPA Form LP1F: For Property and Financial Affairs.
      • LPA Form LP1H: For Health and Welfare.
    • Each form includes several sections:
      • Part A: Details about you (the donor) and the attorneys.
      • Part B: Specify how you want your attorneys to make decisions.
      • Part C: Optional preferences and instructions.
      • Part D: Names of people to notify when registering the LPA (recommended but optional).
      • Part E: A certificate provider’s statement (someone who confirms your understanding of the LPA and ensures you are not under undue influence).

Remember that registering your LPA with the OPG can take up to 20 weeks, and the cost is £82 unless you qualify for a reduction or exemption. If you no longer need your LPA or want to create a new one, you can cancel it1If you need further assistance, feel free to contact our office

Make Your Lasting Power of Attorney Before It's Too Late

A Lasting Power of Attorney can only be made whilst you still have mental capacity. After you have lost mental capacity your family will have to apply to the Court of Protection in order to become your “deputy” and make decisions on your behalf. This is an Extremely timely and costly process and the powers a deputy has are limited compared to those of an attorney

10 Features and Benefits of Having a Lasting Power of Attorney in Place

  1. Decision-Making Control:  With a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA), you retain the power to appoint someone you trust to make crucial decisions on your behalf when you are unable to do so, ensuring your preferences and values are respected.
  2.  Avoiding Court Appointments : By setting up an LPA, you prevent the need for court-appointed guardianships or deputies, saving time and expenses while ensuring your chosen representative acts on your behalf.
  3. Personalised Instructions : An LPA allows you to provide specific instructions to your chosen attorney regarding your financial, healthcare, and personal welfare matters, enabling personalised decision-making based on your preferences.
  4. Financial Security : The Property and Financial Affairs LPA empowers your appointed attorney to manage your finances, ensuring bills are paid, investments are handled responsibly, and your assets are safeguarded during incapacity.
  5. Health & Welfare : With the Health and Welfare LPA, your chosen attorney can make healthcare decisions aligned with your prior wishes, providing you with an Attorney who ensures your well-being and medical preferences are upheld.
  6. Peace of Mind : Having an LPA in place gives you and your loved ones peace of mind, knowing that you have a designated person to handle critical matters during challenging times.
  7. Preventing Exploitation : The LPA reduces the risk of others taking advantage of your vulnerability during incapacitation, as only your trusted attorney(s) will have the legal authority to act on your behalf.
  8. Flexibility in Appointment : You can appoint multiple attorneys, specify when their authority comes into effect, and choose whether they act jointly or independently, providing flexibility in tailoring the LPA to your unique needs.
  9. Time and Cost Savings : Creating an LPA while you are mentally competent is faster and more cost-effective than court proceedings required to appoint a deputy if you become incapacitated without an LPA.
  10. Empowering Loved Ones : By establishing an LPA, you empower your loved ones to focus on providing emotional support rather than facing uncertainty and disagreements about decision-making during times of incapacitation.
