Specialist Solicitors for Lasting Powers of Attorney

LPAs first came into force in October 2007 as a result of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 as replacements for Enduring Powers of Attorney, allowing people (donors) who have mental capacity and are over the age of 18 to appoint another person (attorney) - or people - to make decisions on their behalf, if they become unable to do so themselves.

There are two kinds of LPAs:

  • Lasting Powers of Attorney (Property and Affairs), enabling you to authorise your attorney to make decisions regarding finance, bills, bank accounts and property
  • Lasting Powers of Attorney (Health and Welfare)), relating to decisions about health and personal welfare, such as where the donor should live, consent to medical treatment and day-to-day care

Percy Hughes & Roberts Solicitors Can Help You Create a Lasting Power of Attorney

Before an LPA can be used, you must have the document registered with the Office of the Public Guardian - without this, your attorney will have no legal authority to act on your behalf.

Our specialist solicitors have vast experience working in this area of the law, and will provide you with all the information and advice you need to achieve the result you want, clearly and comprehensively.
