Having someone to rely on

Should you lose mental capacity without a registered Lasting Lasting Power of Attorney/LPA – (LPA) in place, your family will be required to apply to the Court of Protection to appoint a named deputy, who could manage the day to day financial and health care related decisions for you. This is a lengthy and costly process. The best way to protect you and your loved ones is to have an LPA in place, earlier rather than later. Don’t worry, we’re here to assist and support you from start to finish. 

Before your appointment with the consultant, have in mind the persons who you trust and whom you would feel most comfortable as your attorneys, to make those important decisions, when you can’t.

What is a Lasting Lasting Power of Attorney/LPA?

A Lasting Lasting Power of Attorney/LPA – (LPA) is the document which is set up whilst you are fit and well, in preparation for possible future need.  You can appoint anyone whom you feel most comfortable with, as your attorney.

There are many reasons such as dementia, stroke, trauma etc, why you may be unable to manage your affairs.  Having registered LPA’s in place will offer peace of mind for you and your loved ones, to make those important decisions when you no longer can.

There are two types of Lasting Lasting Power of Attorney/LPA – LPA

  • Property and Financial affairs – enables your chosen Attorneys to make decisions relating to your finances and allows them to manage your bank accounts, savings, bills and property etc. 
  • Health and Welfare – enables your chosen Attorneys to make decisions relating to your care and health needs etc. 

Why should I have LPAs?

  • Health conditions like Dementia, Parkinson’s disease, or a stroke can make it virtually impossible to make decisions.
  • Should you lose mental capacity without an LPA, helping you to manage your affairs could cost your family time and thousands of pounds.
  • Without an LPA, you can severely restrict any joint bank accounts you have with your partner.
  • This can be devastating, especially if the joint owner has paid their income or pension into this account or, they use it to pay important bills such as the mortgage or utility bills etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone over the age of 18 should have an LPA. LPA’s are put in place to give the responsibility of decisions to someone you trust. 

Property and Financial affairs – this LPA gives the persons you choose the power to manage your property and Financial decisions. This may include bank accounts, taxes, receiving a pension and insurance, even downsizing your home. 

Health and Welfare LPA includes aspects related to your health and well-being, including choices about your day-to-day care (washing, dressing, eating), medical care and treatment, or whether it is time to move to a home. It is sometimes referred to as a LPA for personal welfare.

Many people choose to use a professional to ensure that everything is properly filled out and completed in their specific order. LPA’s are such important documents, and each stage in the process is important to ensure valid  documentation. Having a professional gives peace of mind knowing everything has been managed properly. 

No. LPAs are personal to the indvidual, and setting up your own LPA is essential. However both LPAs can be set up concurrently by the same solicitor.

The Office of the Public Guardian have been known to take from 10 to 15 weeks to complete the registration. This also gives the time needed to allow the “person to be told”, to be informed. Any mistake to any part of the documents can render it useless.

No, but many people do, particularly if they have complex properties, or want to make sure that the LPA is not invalidated by any limitations or requirements.

The person who set up the LPA, so long as they have mental capacity, can cancel an LPA.  The appointed attorneys should be informed that the LPA’s are being terminated. It will need to be signed, dated and witnessed like the initial LPA, and then sent to the Office of the Public Guardian.

It is recommended to have a registered LPA.
