Lasting Powers of Attorney at Marshall Wills and Trusts

Understanding Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a vital legal tool that empowers a person, known as the Donor, to designate an individual or a trust corporation—referred to as the Attorney—to manage their affairs. This appointment can become crucial should the Donor lose the capacity to make decisions or choose to delegate their decision-making powers. There are primarily two types of LPAs:

1- Property and Financial Affairs LPA This type of LPA allows appointed persons to handle financial duties on your behalf, such as:

  • Managing real estate transactions, including buying and selling properties.

  • Operating bank or building society accounts.

  • Handling income from benefits, pensions, and allowances.

2- Health and Welfare LPA A Health and Welfare LPA enables your chosen representatives to make critical health and lifestyle decisions for you, such as:

  • Making choices about your healthcare and medical treatments.

  • Deciding on your living arrangements, including staying at home with support or moving into a care facility.

  • Overseeing everyday aspects of your life, like diet and personal care.
