There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) – sometimes known as Power of Attorney or POA – available.

We should all have a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) for Property and Financial Affairs as soon as we have any financial responsibility.

If you own a business, you could require two Property & Financial LPAs: one for your personal affairs and one for your company. (A commercial LPA ensures that your business can continue to operate even if you are unable to perform banking or pay invoices.)

The second type of Lasting Power of Attorney is for your Health and Welfare; it gives a person or individuals you trust the authority to assist you in making decisions, or to make decisions on your behalf, in areas such as:

Describe your daily routine (e.g. washing, dressing and eating)

Your medical treatment

If necessary, moving into a care facility

If required, your attorneys can have a role in whether or not you receive life-sustaining care. This can be used in conjunction with a Living Will, also known as an Advance Directive in some cases.

10 Reasons Why You Should Have A Lasting Power of Attorney In Place

  1. Decision-making control: Setting up a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) allows you to retain control over who will make important decisions on your behalf when you are unable to do so. You can choose someone you trust implicitly to act in your best interests, ensuring that your wishes are honored.
  2. Unforeseen incapacity: Life is unpredictable, and accidents or sudden illnesses can occur at any time, rendering you temporarily or permanently incapacitated. Having an LPA in place ensures that your affairs are managed without delay by someone you have authorised.
  3. Avoiding court-appointed guardianship: Without an LPA, if you become incapacitated and unable to make decisions, the court may appoint a guardian or deputy to act on your behalf. This process can be time-consuming, expensive, and may result in someone making decisions for you whom you would not have chosen yourself.
  4. Personalised decision-making: An LPA allows you to provide specific instructions to your chosen attorney about how you want your financial, healthcare, and personal welfare matters handled. This ensures that your values and preferences are respected even if you cannot express them directly.
  5. Financial management: With a Property and Financial Affairs LPA, your appointed attorney can handle financial matters such as paying bills, managing investments, and ensuring your assets are protected during periods of incapacity.
  6. Healthcare decisions: The Health and Welfare LPA empowers your chosen attorney to make decisions about medical treatments, care options, and end-of-life choices based on your previously expressed wishes and best interests.
  7. Peace of mind for loved ones: By establishing an LPA, you relieve your loved ones of the burden of making difficult decisions without clear guidance from you. They can focus on supporting you emotionally rather than facing potential disagreements about what actions to take.
  8. Minimizing the risk of exploitation: Having an LPA in place reduces the likelihood of others taking advantage of your vulnerable state during incapacitation, as only your trusted attorney(s) will have the legal authority to act on your behalf.
  9. Flexibility in appointment: You can appoint multiple attorneys, specify when their authority becomes effective, and decide if they should act jointly or independently, providing flexibility in tailoring the LPA to your unique circumstances.
  10. Time and cost savings: Creating an LPA while you are mentally competent is generally quicker and less expensive than court proceedings required to appoint a deputy if you become incapacitated without an LPA.

In conclusion, having a Lasting Power of Attorney offers a multitude of advantages, from maintaining control over your decisions during incapacitation to protecting your assets and well-being. It grants you peace of mind and ensures that your best interests and preferences are respected, making it a crucial legal instrument to have in place for everyone’s future security and well-being.
