What happens to your property, assets or even your health care if you are rendered unable to make your own decisions? This is where a lasting power of attorney (also known as an LPA) can help you to ensure that what you want is what happens.

If you do not have an LPA and you lose the ability to manage your affairs then the Court of Protection will appoint a deputy on your behalf. This deputy will have control over what happens to your assets. They will also be in control of what care you will receive. Given that the deputy will be a court appointment, it can be a costly affair if the situation runs for many years. In addition, as the deputy does not know you, they may not be able to understand what you would want in any given circumstance.

Why create an LPA?

An LPA is a court form completed by you and gives you the opportunity to appoint attorneys of your choosing. There are two types, ‘property and affairs’ and ‘health and welfare’. The two types of LPA are mutually exclusive and you will need to complete both to fully provide for your future wellbeing.

The property and affairs LPA gives your attorneys the ability to use your assets for your benefit. In the LPA you are able to give specific instructions as to what your assets can be used for. The health and welfare LPA gives your attorneys the power to make decisions about your care and what medical treatments you wish to receive. You can provide specific directions as to
anything you do, or do not, wish to happen.

The benefit of choosing your own attorneys is that you can make certain that individuals with your best interests are acting for you.
