A Lasting Power of Attorney, or LPA, is a legal document that allows you to appoint one or more people to make decisions on your behalf during your lifetime, giving you peace of mind that there is someone you trust to look after your affairs if you become unable to do so yourself. There are two forms of LPAs available - one for Property & Financial Affairs (LPA PA) and one for Health & Welfare (LPA HW) - with most people choosing both types of LPA to ensure complete protection of both your property and money in addition to decisions surrounding their healthcare, medical treatment and living arrangements.
Without an LPA in place, there is no one with the legal authority to manage your affairs, and your family or loved ones must go through a complex and expensive legal process to be able to make decisions for you. It's also not possible to create an LPA once you are unable to make your own decisions, so if you think you would like an LPA, it's something that you should consider putting in place as soon as possible.
