Lasting Powers of Attorney
appoint someone to look after your property and welfare
An LPA is a legal document that appoints one or more people to act for you, if in the future you become incapable of making your own decisions. It must be created while you are capable of understanding the nature and effect of an LPA.
There are two types of LPA:
- Property and Financial LPA that gives the attorney authority to make decisions about your financial affairs
- Health and Welfare LPA that gives the attorney authority to make decisions about your healthcare and personal welfare.
