When you need Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)

Are you worried about what will happen to you if you become ill or get involved in an accident and, as a result, you become incapacitated and can no longer manage your health and welfare and your property and financial affairs? Are you a business owner and need a Business Lasting Power of Attorney if you can no longer manage your business affairs for health reasons and need a trusted, suitable person to ensure business continuity for you and your family? 

A lasting power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document that names and registers the Attorney or Attorneys, the person(s) whom you trust and whom you want to be your Attorney (s) and who will make decisions on your behalf in the case when you (the Donor) may be unable to make.

That is why someone must take control of your affairs in advance, at a time when you have the capacity to appoint someone you trust to make those decisions on your behalf at a later date. This can be done by setting up an LPA. There are two types of LPA, namely (1) Property and Financial Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney; and (2) Health and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney.

What is a property and financial affairs LPA?

With a property and financial affairs LPA, your Attorneys have the authority to make several decisions, including but not limited to the following:

  • Paying for your (Donor’s) household, care and other bills.
  • Claiming on your behalf and using your benefits or pension for your everyday needs.
  • Maintaining and repairing your home.
  • Managing your bank accounts and savings accounts.
  • Using your (Donor’s) money to buy things you need or want.
  • Dealing with your tax affairs etc.

What is a health and welfare LPA?

With a health and welfare LPA, your Attorneys have the authority to make decisions including, but not limited to:

  • Your day-to-day care, such as diet and clothing.
  • Where you (The Donor) live or your care placement.
  • Giving or refusing medical treatment.
