A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) allows your loved ones to take care of you and your finances if you become unable to do so for yourself.
Allows your loved ones to deal with paying your bills, buying and selling your property and managing your bank accounts and investments.
Covers decisions about your health and care and even deciding where you may live. This can only be used if someone is incapable of dealing with such matters themselves. Anyone acting in this capacity can have far-reaching powers to act on your behalf, including but not limited to legal, financial and health decisions – therefore take careful consideration and legal consultation before agreeing. The individual selected need not have specialist knowledge or experience, but you must trust them to act in your best interests.
