There are two different kinds of Lasting Power of Attorney – Financial Decisions Lasting Power of Attorney and also Health & Care Decisions Lasting Power of Attorney. Each of these types takes care of different decisions and there are different application forms for each type. You are able to choose to assign both types or just one. You can also have one attorney act for both, or you could if you prefer have two different attorneys.

Why do it?

  • To feel rest assured – you will know exactly who will be dealing with your financial affairs if a situation arises where you are unable to yourself (either temporarily or also permanently)
  • For cost efficiency – an initial outlay can save time in the future, as well as complication and expense, and help stop the incurrence of the cost of a Court of Protection Deputyship when in the event of mental incapacity
  • To make the administration of your affairs for your family and friends far simpler in a situation where you have mental incapacity.   Whoever you choose as your Attorney will be able to manage your affairs without the problems faced where there is no clear legal authority
  • To prepare for the worst.   No one is able to predict the future; mental incapacity can happen without warning e.g. following an accident or perhaps a stroke.   Illnesses may mean you have physical incapacity or extended hospitalisation.   Household bills still have to thought about, any businesses still need to be run, and perhaps you may need someone to sell a house and organise residential care or nursing.
