Lasting Powers of Attorney Solicitors London, Marlow, High Wycombe, Reading, Maidenhead, Windsor, Henley-on-Thames
Sometimes people wish to plan ahead, and set out in advance what they would like to happen should they become unable to make decisions for themselves in the future. A Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) is an important legal document that enables a person who has capacity and is over 18 (Donor) to choose another person or people (attorney(s)) to make decisions on their behalf.
There are 2 different types of LPAs. A property and financial affairs LPA is for decisions about finances, such as selling the Donor's house or managing their bank account. A health and welfare LPA is for decisions about both health and personal welfare, such as where to live, day-to-day care or having medical treatment.
An Attorney is appointed to make decisions as if they were the Donor themselves. An Attorney must at all times act in the Donor's best interests.
