Lasting Power of Attorney

Wouldn’t it provide peace of mind to know that someone you trust will be in charge of your affairs when you are most vulnerable and in need of assistance?

Guide to Lasting Power of Attorney

Many individuals find themselves in situations where they are no longer capable of managing their own affairs. In the event that you become unable to handle your affairs, a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document that empowers you to appoint one or more attorneys of your choosing to assist in managing your affairs on your behalf.

Essentially, by establishing a Lasting Power of Attorney, you designate a person or persons to make decisions and take care of your affairs if you are no longer able to do so due to mental or physical incapacity.

Lasting Powers of Attorney are not restricted by age; any individual over the age of 18 can create one, and anyone above the age of 18 can be nominated as an attorney. You don’t need to be ill or currently incapacitated to initiate a Lasting Power of Attorney.

The fundamental requirement for a Lasting Power of Attorney is that your attorney must always act in your best interests.

What are the two types of Lasting Power of Attorney?

There are two types of powers for which an attorney is responsible: making decisions regarding your property and financial affairs, or making decisions concerning your health and welfare. Attorneys are not permitted to make changes to your will.

Lasting Power of Attorney for Property & Financial Affairs

This enables the attorney to handle bill payments, deal with banks and investments, arrange and collect benefits, or even sell property on behalf of the donor.

Lasting Power of Attorney for Health & Welfare

This empowers the attorney to make decisions regarding the donor’s care, including where the donor resides, as well as the ability to give or refuse consent to life-sustaining treatment.

In addition to Guisborough, we also provide our services throughout the North East including Middlesbrough & Stockton-on-Tees.

Why Should I Have a Lasting Power of Attorney in Guisborough?

Certain health conditions like dementia or Parkinson’s disease can render decision-making virtually impossible.

In the event that you lose physical or mental capacity, it can be both financially burdensome and time-consuming for your family to obtain the necessary permissions to handle your affairs.

Without the necessary access, bank accounts held by the incapacitated person can become severely restricted, which can have devastating consequences if those funds are needed to cover bills and expenses.

Data protection laws make it extremely challenging for a spouse or family member to assist in these circumstances, as banks and service providers will typically refuse to deal with anyone other than the account holders themselves.

Without a Lasting Power of Attorney in place, bank accounts and investments may be frozen, bills may go unpaid, and there could be risks of property repossession or an inability to sell property when needed.

Why Are More People Turning to an LPA?

While many individuals create a will to prepare for death, the increasing number of people living longer and requiring care has led to a growing trend of setting up Lasting Powers of Attorney. This ensures that your individual needs are prioritized by those whom you trust the most.

It is best to entrust life decisions to the people who know you and whom you trust. Your wishes become irrelevant if a doctor or the local authority has to make decisions on your behalf.

By appointing an attorney, you can still retain control over decision-making even if you are physically incapable, as your attorney will act based on your direction. It is only in cases of mental incapacity that your attorney will make decisions on your behalf.
