What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legally binding document, which enables you to choose a person, or people, that you trust to step into your shoes in the future if you are ever mentally or physically incapable of dealing with your own property and financial affairs or you do not have the mental capacity to make decisions surrounding your health and welfare. 

What if I lose mental capacity and I don't have a Power of Attorney?

If you lose the capacity to make your own decisions and you don’t have a valid lasting power of attorney, you will need to apply to the Court of Protection.

The Court of Protection can decide whether you have the mental capacity to make a decision or not.

None of us like to think about what might happen if we become ill or injured..

We see many people who are becoming increasingly concerned and troubled about potentially losing the capacity to be able to deal with their own property and financial affairs or make decisions regarding their health and welfare in the future.

Our expert advisors are fully trained to provide information about Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA’s).

The last two years have taught us, we just don't know what is around the corner.

We recommend that everyone considers making a Lasting Power of Attorney, no matter their age or state of health. Simply because we just cannot predict what is around the corner and planning for such an eventuality is important.

Making a Lasting Power of Attorney gives you the peace of mind that, should you become ill or injured in the future, your loved ones can deal simply with your affairs.

There are two types of LPA

Health and Welfare LPA

If you have made a Health and Welfare LPA, your attorney will be able to make decisions about, for example, the care and treatment you receive, where you will live and who will visit you. If you do not have an LPA, your loved ones will be left in a difficult position. The relevant authorities will be responsible for making decisions for you, such as medical professionals, care providers and social services.

Property and Financial Affairs LPA

Making a property and financial affairs LPA means that your attorney can make decisions about things such as your bank accounts, mortgage and paying bills.

Kate Garraway and her husband, Derek Draper

Over the last year, we have seen the story of TV presenter Kate Garraway and her husband, Derek Draper, on television and in the news. The documentary showed that the heart-breaking story of Derek’s year-long battle with Coronavirus, has been further complicated by the fact that the couple had very little legal protection in place. For example, Kate was unable to access funds to manage Derek’s medical care; and unable to refinance her mortgage.

Derek Draper is 53 years old and pre-covid, was in good health.

“Like many things, the car is entirely in Derek’s name, the insurance is in Derek’s name, a lot of our bank accounts. There are lots of financial goings on which are making life very complicated because I can’t get access to things because legally, I haven’t got power of attorney” – Kate Garraway

Without a heath and welfare LPA, Kate did not have a legal right to access Derek’s medical notes due to data protection. Only in exceptional circumstances will a deputyship for health and welfare be granted by the Court.
