LPAs: Welcome

What are LPAs?

Lasting Powers of Attorney ("LPAs") were created under the Mental Capacity Act 2005. 


LPAs provide a legal framework for a Donor to donate their powers to one or more Attorneys who can then use the Donor's powers in the Donor's best interests.


When LPAs came into effect on 1 October 2007, they replaced Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPAs) which were less flexible at meeting the needs of the Donors.

LPAs: About

Which LPA is right for you?

There are two types of LPA, one of which deals with the health and welfare of the Donor and the other which deals with the property and financial affairs of the Donor.

Health and welfare LPA

The Health and Welfare LPA gives the Attorney the power to decide on the donor's care, including if the donor should remain at home or move elsewhere if it is in the donors Best Interests.

The Property and Financial Affairs LPA

The Property and Financial Affairs LPA gives the Attorney the power to manage the Donors finances, including their property, to help pay any bills. The Donor can also apply for benefits on behalf of the donor.

When is the right time to seek a lasting power of attorney?

LPAs must be made whilst the donor has mental capacity to make his own decisions.


When the Donor gives their powers to their Attorneys (up to four people can make decisions, either jointly, or individually) an independent person needs to Certify that the Donor has done so freely and fully understanding the consequences of his action.


For this reason, it is sensible to consider professional assistance when putting your Lasting Powers of Attorney in place.
