Top questions about Lasting Power of Attorney

A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a way of protecting yourself by giving someone you trust the legal authority to make decisions on your behalf. An LPA is usually used when you, or a loved one, loses the ability to make rational decisions based on their reduced mental capacity.

An LPA will last until the donor’s death. That’s why it is so important that a Lasting Power of Attorney is given to someone you trust to make the right decisions.

In most cases, it will take around 20 weeks for a Lasting Power of Attorney to be properly filed and completed. However, without professional, legal support throughout the process, it can take much longer for your application to be accepted.

An LPA gives the attorney the ability to make decisions based around your money and property, in addition to any long-term healthcare decisions. It is extremely important that you only give your LPA to someone that you trust completely.
