Lasting Power of Attorney Guidance, for Everyone

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a document which allows you to choose someone, or more than one person, to assist you in making decisions if you are struggling, or to make decisions for you if you cannot make them yourself. You can appoint someone to help you with your money and your care.

A Lasting Power of Attorney can only be created when you have capacity. If a person has already lost capacity it will be necessary for an application to be made to the Court of Protection.

If you wish a Lasting Powers of Attorney can also be used when you have capacity. If you are temporarily unable to manage your financial affairs, granting a Lasting Power of Attorney can give someone the ability to assist you in practical tasks, such as writing and signing a cheque, withdrawing money or speaking on the telephone on your behalf. For example, you may ask your Attorney to take care of your monthly bills during a hospital stay. In more recent times, Lasting Powers of Attorney have been used by those who are shielding, isolating or uncomfortable leaving their home.

At Lockings, we can advise on all matters relating to LPAs and Court of Protection applications.. Our Lasting Power of Attorney lawyers can guide you through the process

Agreeing to act as an Attorney is not something which should be taken lightly as you are legally bound to take certain action and there are some things you cannot do. If you have been appointed as an Attorney we can help you to understand what your legal obligations are and what actions you can, and cannot, take.

As a full-service law firm, we offer a number of other services to protect your friends and family from the unexpected, including probate, wills, trusts, and tax planning.
