There are two types of Lasting Powers of Attorney:-

1.         Property and Financial Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney

This document allows you to choose people to act on your behalf (as an attorney) and make decisions about your property and financial affairs whilst you still have capacity as well as when you lack capacity.  For example, it may be easier for you to give someone the power to carry out tasks such as paying your bills or collecting your benefits or other income.

2.         Health and Welfare Lasting Powers of Attorney

This document allows you to choose people to act on your behalf (as an attorney) and make decisions about your health and personal welfare when you do not have the capacity to do so yourself.  This can include decisions about your healthcare and medical treatment, decisions about where you live and day-to-day decisions about your personal welfare, such as your diet, dress or daily routine.

QualitySolicitors Burton & Co can prepare the Lasting Power of Attorney document for you and arrange for it to be registered at the Office of the Public Guardian, which is necessary for your Attorneys to begin acting upon it.
