Lasting Power of Attorney

For Free Initial Legal Advice call 0800 019 3460 or send an email

There may come a time when, because you are incapable of managing your property and financial affairs or personal welfare, you will need someone to do this for you. A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document that lets you appoint a friend, relative or professional as an 'attorney' to make decisions on your behalf.

The Lasting Power of Attorney has replaced the previous legal document known as an Enduring Power of Attorney, and can be drawn up at any time while you have capacity but it has no legal standing until it is registered with The Office of the Public Guardian. A registered Lasting Power of Attorney can be used at any time, whether you have the mental ability to act for yourself or not.

Will Solutions can assist you in creating two types of Lasting Power of Attorney:

You may not be able to check up on the attorney yourself if you become incapable, so it may be a good idea to appoint more than one person to help prevent abuse of the responsibility. Choose people you can trust to act in your best interests. You should consider how well they look after their own financial affairs and whether you can trust them to use your money to meet your needs.
