Lasting power of attorney
– health and finance

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document that allows an individual (the Donor) to appoint a trusted person/people (Attorney) to make decisions regarding Health and Welfare or Property and Finance on behalf of the Donor.

Why is a Lasting Power of Attorney needed?

Creating a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) allows an individual to plan ahead and ensure their affairs are managed by people they trust, in case they are no longer able to make decisions themselves. It provides peace of mind and safeguards their interests, ensuring that their wishes and best interests are respected even if they cannot express them directly. LPA’s are subject to legal requirements and must be registered with the Office of the Public Guarding before they can be used.
