Lasting Power of Attorney

In an uncertain world it’s reassuring to know that our wishes will be respected even if we’re not in a position to make our own decisions. That’s why many people choose to create a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) to provide protection should an accident or ill health prevent them from making decisions in the future.

An LPA is a legal document that allows another person to make decisions about your wellbeing and financial affairs on your behalf. Appointing an attorney before you need someone to act for you gives you the peace of mind that your affairs will be managed as you want them to be. It’s not possible to create a LPA once you’re unable to make your own decisions so if you think you would like a LPA; it’s something that you should consider putting in place as soon as possible.

There are different types of LPAs. You can have a LPA for Health and Welfare decisions as well as a LPA for financial affairs. To be valid, a LPA must be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian.

At QualitySolicitors Knight Polson we can help with all aspects of creating a LPA - from choosing an attorney and deciding which type of LPA is right for you, to registering the documentation with the Public Guardian.

      The appointment of attorneys in relation to financial affairs is equally relevant to business assets as personal ones. If you’re a company director, partner or sole trader, it’s in your best interests to ensure that you’re protected, if for whatever reason you can’t make decisions. If this happens, you may not be able to form contracts, complete an undertaking already given or take action against a debt. Will not appointing an attorney put your business in a vulnerable position?
