There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA), a Property & Financial Affairs LPA and a Health & Welfare LPA. It is hard to imagine losing the ability to make decisions about your finances or welfare in later life. However, a Lasting Power of Attorney can give you peace of mind by allowing you to plan who would be able to make decisions for you should you become unable to make decisions for yourself.

Our expert team can help and guide you through setting up one or both documents, which will enable you to choose your attorney(s) to act for you in later life.

You may have already planned for the future and set up an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) appointing an attorney(s) to manage your financial affairs should you be unable to do so. Your EPA is still valid and the attorney(s) you have appointed will be able to manage your affairs on your behalf. If you are unable to manage your financial affairs, your attorney(s) will need to register the EPA with the Office of the Public Guardian. At Kiteleys, our specialist team can assist your attorney(s) with the registration and guide them through the process.

Since October 2007 it has not been possible to make a new EPA. Although existing EPA’s are still valid, it is now only possible to make an LPA.

Court of Protection Deputyships

If someone becomes incapable of managing their financial affairs and they do not have either a Lasting Power of Attorney or an Enduring Power of Attorney in place, then an application to the Court of Protection must be made for a representative (a Deputy) to act on that person’s behalf.

The application usually enables the Deputy to take over the financial affairs of the person, but an application can also be made for a Deputy to make health and welfare decisions.

We can provide advice at the outset and assist with the application to obtain the Court Order to enable the Deputy to manage the person’s affairs.
