A correctly drafted Power of Attorney enables a person, or persons, to act on your behalf. It has to be given while you, the donor, has full mental capacity.

Lasting Power of Attorney

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document which allows you to give another person the legal authority to make healthcare and/or financial decisions on your behalf. The person you appoint is called an Attorney and should be someone you know and trust.


In England & Wales there are two different types of Lasting Power of Attorney:

  • Health and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney
  • Property and Financial Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney

You can have one or both types of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) at the same time. 

We currently have a 2 FOR 1 offer on LPAs to ensure our clients do not use their financial situation as a reason not to protect themselves should the worst happen. 


You can only make a LPA whilst you have mental capacity to do so. Many people don’t know that their next of kin has no automatic legal right to manage their spouse’s affairs without a LPA in place.


For initial advice about making a Lasting Power of Attorney call 0800 433 27 28 or contact us online and we will help you.


If you don’t make a Lasting Power of Attorney and you do lose mental capacity in the future, your loved ones will not be able to manage your affairs until they have obtained a Deputyship Order from the Court of Protection; this will take much longer and cost a lot more than making a Lasting Power of Attorney. If you believe you are at this stage, get in contact with us immediately and we can advise you accordingly.
