A Lasting Power of Attorney (often called an LPA) allows you to appoint someone to make decisions on your behalf. LPAs are particularly useful in situations where you become incapable of managing your own affairs.
A common misconception with powers of attorney is that they should be made when someone is losing or has lost capacity. In actual fact when someone loses capacity they also lose the ability to appoint an attorney. It is therefore never too early to make an LPA. Ideally an LPA should be made when you are fit and healthy so that you are safeguarded for the future.
Our team of specialist lawyers here in Somerset can guide you through the process and prepare a lasting power of attorney speedily and cost effectively.
