  • qxio-arrow-down-b What's it all about?

    A Lasting Power of Attorney lets you appoint someone you trust (known as an Attorney) to either help you make decisions or make decisions on your behalf.

    It provides the peace of mind that if something were to happen to you, someone you can trust can make decisions and speak on your behalf. 

    There are 2 types of Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA):

    1. Health and welfare
    2. Property and financial affairs

    Health and welfare LPAs set out and cover decisions about healthcare and personal welfare such as where you should live, who you should have contact with and what social activities you take part in.

    It can also include authorising medical treatment and making end of life decisions.

    Property and financial affairs LPAs can be used both when you still have capacity to make decisions and when you are unable.

    These decisions could include: 

    • Buying or selling a property
    • Paying a mortgage
    • Investing money
    • Paying bills
