What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?
A: A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a document which gives somebody you trust (your attorney) the power to deal with your property and financial affairs, or make decisions about your health and welfare, for example where you live or your medical care. This is an important safeguard for the future meaning that your appointed attorney(s) can quickly begin to act on your behalf should you lose the capacity to manage your own affairs or make decisions for yourself, due to old age or poor health.
We offer a fixed fee for preparation and registration of both types of LPA (Property and Financial Affairs/Health and Welfare). If you wish us to prepare both documents we offer a significantly reduced price.
Preparing your LPA now is a cheaper and simpler process than appointing a Deputy later on.
