Professional advice and the preparation of a Lasting Power of Attorney £350
For many, imagining a future where they might need assistance with managing their property, finances or welfare is hard. We are, nevertheless, living in a time of an increasingly aging population, where the practicalities of lifetime planning are very real. Preparing for any eventuality, and ensuring you have trusted individuals in place to assist you, is something you should deal with now.
A Lasting Power of Attorney(LPA) - is a document that outlines the decisions you would like your nominated attorney to make on your behalf, if you were physically or mentally unable to. In short, it can provide an essential safety blanket.

What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a document that grants the person or people of your choice the authority to deal with your property and finances and welfare, should you no longer be able to express your wishes.
The Lasting Power of Attorney for Property and Finance document gives the people of your choice, the attorney or attorneys, the authority to deal with your property and finances, such as being able to pay your bills and manage your bank account.
The Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare allows your attorney to make decisions about your welfare, but only once you have lost mental capacity.

Who should have a Lasting Power of Attorney

If you are over the age of 18 you should consider having a Lasting Power of Attorney. People of any age can suddenly lose capacity through accidents.
It is worth noting that a Lasting Power of Attorney is not the same as a will: they are two entirely different documents. As both are part of planning the future, many get both written at the same time.
It is only possible to put an LPA in place whilst you are still capable of understanding the nature and effect of the document. Should you lose this capacity, you cannot enter into a LPA, nor can anyone else do so on your behalf. Your next of kin have no automatic legal right to manage your affairs without a lasting power of attorney.

A Will should be prepared if you want your estate to be distributed to the people you choose and not to those decided by the law. For example, if you are not married but living with someone, a Will can enable your partner to remain in the home.
