A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is only in force during your lifetime, it is a document which gives powers to your attorney(s) to make decisions for you if you are unable to make them yourself. There are two types of LPA although there is no obligation to create both:
- One that governs your property and financial affairs
- And another which deals with your health and welfare.
People tend to hold a lot of misconceptions about Lasting Powers of Attorney and this blog attempts to address some of the top ones.
