Start your fully legal Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) online

A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a legal document that allows someone to give another person(s) the legal authority to make decisions on their behalf, if, at some time in the future they are unable to make decisions themselves.

A  lasting power of attorney is also known as:

  • Power of Attorney
  • POA or P.O.A.
  • Enduring Power of Attorney
  • Ordinary Power of Attorney
  • Continuing Power of Attorney

An LPA is a prescribed legal form that allows someone (the Donor) to choose someone else (the Attorney(s)) to make decisions about things such as property and financial affairs and health welfare at a time in the future when the donor is no longer able to make those decisions, (lack of mental capacity) or wishes to have help in making those decisions. 

High Street Solicitors charge an average of £400 + VAT to complete EACH Lasting Power of Attorney Document and registration forms.

A Health and Welfare lasting power of attorney allows the attorney to make decisions for the donor regarding their daily life, such as every-day routines like what they eat, cleaning the house, and so on. It also gives them the right to make healthcare decisions, including whether they need to move into a care home, or even more sensitive subjects relating to life-sustaining treatment, and so on. 

Unlike the Health and Welfare LPA, a Property and Financial Affairs LPA can be enforced as soon as it is signed as long as you agree to it – even if you are still of sound mind. It gives the attorney the right to make decisions about the donor’s finances and property, as the name suggests, including your bills, pensions, loan payments, benefits, and so on.
