A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document, which enables you to appoint someone now (your attorney) to make decisions on your behalf at a later time if you could not make those decisions yourself due to mental incapacity.
There are two types of Lasting Powers of Attorney. You can make a Property and Finance LPA which enables your Attorney to make decisions on your behalf about financial matters. This can include paying bills and selling your house. You can also make a Personal Welfare LPA which enables your Attorney to make decisions about your welfare such as medical treatment or where you live.
Lasting Powers of Attorney can only be used once they have been registered with the Office of the Public Guardian.
