Lasting Powers of Attorney

A Power of Attorney is a document in which one person (the donor) gives another person (the donee) authority to act on his or her behalf and in his or her name. An Ordinary Power of Attorney is cancelled if the donor becomes mentally incapable. A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA), however, remains in force despite the donor’s mental incapacity, provided that it is registered with the Office of the Public Guardian.

LPAs can be created by anyone and are a sensible precaution against the accidents, illnesses and injuries that can incapacitate a person of any age. The alternative is a lengthy and costly Deputyship application to the Court of Protection.

Fixed fees are available for both the preparation and registration of a LPA.


For a fixed fee, we can advise on the relevant law and the enrolment procedure and prepare the necessary documents for adults and children alike.
