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.
