Lasting Power Of Attorney Solicitors
A Power of Attorney is a legal document whereby a person (the Donor) gives authority to one or more persons they trust (called the Attorney(s)) to act on their behalf and to make decisions with regard to their financial affairs and/or their personal welfare. There can be an ordinary power of attorney or a lasting power of attorney.
Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document where a person (the Donor) appoints a trusted person (the Attorney) to act and make decisions on their behalf concerning their legal matters, financial matters and health, if the Donor is not longer able to. For example, if the Donor is affected by a mental disorder or is incapacitated in a coma, their Attorney can carry out their wishes for them.
There are two types of Lasting Powers of Attorney: Property and Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney, which allows the Attorney to make decisions about the Donor’s finances such as include recovering income, collecting benefits from the government, selling and purchasing property, paying bills and other decisions relating to the management of property.
The second type of LPA is the Health and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney, which allows Attorney to make decisions about the Donor’s health care and welfare, such as deciding where the Donor should live or making a decision about medical treatment. Every LPA must be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian before it can be used.
