Personal Lasting Powers of Attorney
Who will make your decisions if you can’t? It’s something none of us want to think about – but what would happen if you couldn’t manage your financial matters through incapacity?
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) will set out your wishes if an accident, illness or old age makes it impossible for you to look after your affairs and care yourself.
You decide who handles your finances and who can make decisions about your welfare. It makes good sense to get your LPAs drafted while you’re fit and well, putting everyone’s mind at rest.

What is an LPA?
A Lasting Power of Attorney means you choose who will manage your finances, and who will make decisions about your medical treatment or care.
There are two types of LPA a Property and Affairs LPA and a Health and Welfare LPA.
What happens without an LPA?
Banks, Financial Advisors and investment managers will not deal with anyone except the account holder. Without an LPA your family would need to apply to a Court. This can take many months and incur considerable legal fees. Meanwhile your family could experience financial problems as bills may not get paid and everyone suffers from stress.
