Expert Legal Advice on Lasting Power of Attorney

Solicitor For Lasting Power Of Attorney In Liverpool City Centre

A Lasting Power of Attorney is an important document which allows the client to choose another person to make decisions on his or her behalf in the future even if the donor of the Power becomes unable to manage his or her financial affairs.

It is possible in the Lasting Power of Attorney to include guidance for the Attorney as to the donor's wishes and details of any restrictions and conditions on the Attorney's powers.

The Lasting Power of Attorney is not valid until it has been registered with the Office of the Public Guardian. There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney, which are outlined below.

  • 1. Property And Financial Affairs
  • 2. Health And Welfare
Which allow the Attorney to make decisions about selling a property and dealing with financial affairs such as paying bills, receiving bank statements, making financial decisions etc.
Which allows decisions on treatment, future care, medication, future residence issues etc.

You can make a Lasting Power of Attorney for either or both of these types of matters. Separate applications for registration have to be made for each Lasting Power of Attorney.

The application is made by completing a Lasting Power of Attorney form and making the appropriate application to the Office of the Public Guardian for registration. The Office of the Public Guardian manages the registration process and maintains a register of all registered Lasting Power of Attorneys.

It is important for a Lasting Power of Attorney to be made to ensure that one's affairs are properly dealt with if a person becomes unable to manage his or her own affairs in the future. If a Lasting Power of Attorney is not made and a person can no longer manage his or her own affairs it may be necessary for an application to be made for a Deputy to be appointed by the Court of Protection and this procedure is more expensive and involves the family in more time consuming legal work.
