Integrity Wills - There When You Need Us
Nobody likes to think about getting old and possibly losing mental capacity.
However, an LPA can be thought of in a similar way to an insurance policy. You insure your house, your car, your pets, your children and your life – a Lasting Power of Attorney is very similar to taking out an insurance policy to ensure someone you trust will be able to make decisions for you if you are not able to.
A Property and Finance LPA covers decisions about your finances and property and can include; paying your household bills, collecting your income and benefits or selling your house if necessary. This could be used even if you still have mental capacity to deal with these things yourself, for example if you were living abroad or in hospital.
A Health and Welfare LPA allows your Attorney to make decisions such as where you live, or day to day care such as your diet and what clothes you wear. This type of LPA can only be used once you have lost mental capacity, and it must be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian before it can be used.
Once you have lost mental capacity you cannot set up an LPA, your family must apply to the Court of Protection to appoint a Deputy. This is a very costly and time consuming process and can be avoided by acting now instead of waiting just in case.
If you are interested in setting up an LPA please contact us here at Integrity as we truly specialise in this area.
