A Financial Affairs LPA allows the person you trust to help you with your finances such as the running of your bank accounts, claiming and receiving pensions, benefits and allowances, making investments and buying and selling your home.
Your attorney/s will have full power to act on your behalf unless you choose to restrict some of their powers.
Who Needs A Lasting Power of Attorney?
LPAs are not just for the elderly. Serious mental and physical incapacity can hit anyone at any time. If you are over the age of 18 and have the mental capacity to do so, you can set up an LPA and appoint someone who can make decisions for you in the future.
Enduring Power of Attorney
An Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) was the forerunner to the LPA and they are no longer being created. However, if you made an EPA before October 2007, it can still be used.
If you have an EPA and still have your full mental capacity, you can decide to keep it or replace it with a Lasting Power of Attorney. We can help you change your EPA for an LPA with a minimum of fuss.
