The new Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) came in to force on 1st October 2007.
Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPA) made before 1st October 2007 are still valid but must be registered with the Court of Protection if the Donor’s capacity fails.
An LPA allows you to choose someone you trust to act on your behalf should you become incapable. There are two different types of LPA.
- Property and Financial Affairs
- Health and Welfare
The rules for making a LPA are complex. Please contact us for further information and advice.
