Plan for the future, by considering a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA). This legal document allows you (the Grantor) to appoint one or more individuals (‘attorneys’) to assist or make decisions on your behalf, particularly when you lack the mental capacity to do so.

Ensure control over your affairs in various aspects:

1.  Property and Financial Affairs:

  • Covers financial matters and property.
  • Can be used with your consent upon registration or only if mental capacity is lost

2. Health and Welfare:

  • Manages personal and health care decisions.
  • Applicable only when mental capacity is lost.

      Choosing Attorneys:

      • Attorneys can be relatives, friends, professionals, or partners.
      • Consider factors like their ability to manage affairs, trustworthiness, and willingness to act in your best interests.
      • Specify whether attorneys decide jointly or severally.

       Replacement Attorneys:

      • Nominate replacements in case original attorneys can no longer act.
      • Replacement attorneys’ step in if an original attorney dies, loses mental capacity, or cannot act.

      Decision-Making Options:

      1. Jointly and Severally: Attorneys can make decisions individually or together for flexibility.
      2. Jointly: All attorneys must agree unanimously on every decision.
      3. Mix of Jointly and Severally:  Combine joint decisions with individual decisions.

       Restrictions and Guidance:

      • Set conditions and restrictions on how decisions are made.
      • Ensure attorneys follow your guidance and act in your best interests.

       Grantor’s Control:

      • Grantor retain control as long as they have mental capacity.
      • Grantor can cancel a registered LPA if circumstances change.

       Bankruptcy and Debt:

      • Bankruptcy affects property and financial affairs LPA but not health and welfare LPA.
      • Consider legal advice if bankrupt or subject to a debt relief order.

       Replacement Attorney Considerations:

      • Replacement attorneys follow the same criteria as original attorneys.
      • Choose replacements carefully to maintain LPA functionality.

       When LPA Takes Effect:

      • Decide when the LPA becomes effective, either immediately or only when mental capacity is lost.
      • Specify conditions for mental capacity assessment if desired.

       People to Be Told:

      • Choose individuals to be notified when applying to register the LPA.
      • Inform chosen people about their role and the process.

       Correspondent for LPA Application:

      • Decide who, among the applicant, a legal professional, or someone else, will receive correspondence regarding the LPA application.
      • Ensure thoughtful decision-making, clarity in instructions, and communication with relevant parties to safeguard your interests through an LPA.
