Lasting Power of Attorney

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document by which a person gives another person the authority to make certain decisions on his or her behalf. The person making the LPA is called the ‘Donor’ and the person being given the authority is the ‘Attorney’.

What decisions can Attorneys make?

There are two types of LPAs. You can choose to prepare just one or both types:

  • A Property and Financial Affairs LPA allows your attorney to deal with any decisions relating to your property or financial affairs. This can cover such matters as paying bills, dealing with the bank, collecting benefits, selling your house, giving instructions to solicitors and so on.
  • A Health and Welfare LPA allows your attorney to make decisions relating to such matters as decisions on treatment, care, medication, where you live, the care home you live in, and can even extend to whether you would like your attorney to make decisions relating to life sustaining treatment or not.
