An LPA is a legal document that allows another person to make decisions about your wellbeing and affairs on your behalf. Appointing an attorney before you actually need one gives you the peace of mind that your affairs will be managed how you want them to be.
It’s not possible to create an LPA once you’re unable to make your own decisions so, if you think you would like an LPA, it’s something that you should consider putting in place as soon as possible.
There are different types of LPAs depending on what areas of your life you would like an attorney to have control of. You must be 18 or over and have mental capacity (the ability to make your own decisions) when you make your LPA.
We can help with all aspects of creating an LPA - from choosing an attorney and deciding what type of LPA is right for you to correctly registering the documentation. To be valid, an LPA must be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian.
There are 2 types of LPA:
- Health and Welfare
- Property and Financial Affairs
