Lasting Powers of Attorney in Corby

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a powerful legal tool that allows you to designate a trusted individual, or individuals, to act on your behalf. Whether it involves your property and financial affairs or your health and personal welfare, an LPA ensures that important decisions can be made when you are unable to make them independently. LPAs are not solely relevant for retirement or later life planning, as incapacity can unexpectedly arise due to accidents, injuries, illnesses, or strokes, making it a crucial consideration for individuals of all ages. Find out more about LPAs.

What decisions could be made under a Lasting Power of Attorney?

At Tollers, our specialist team of LPA Lawyers in Corby are here to guide you through the process, ensuring that your wishes are respected, and your best interests are safeguarded.

There are two essential types of Lasting Powers of Attorney:

  • Property and Finance: Take charge of your financial matters even when circumstances change. Designate someone you trust to handle your property and financial affairs.
  • Health and Welfare: Your well-being matters. Assign someone who understands your values to make health and welfare decisions that align with your preferences.

You can also set up an ordinary power of attorney, which covers decisions about your financial affairs and is valid while you have mental capacity. This type of power of attorney is valid while you are mentally capable and is suitable for temporary periods such as hospital stays or holidays or if you find it difficult to manage your finances alone.

Who should be my Attorney?

When creating a Lasting Power of Attorney, it is crucial to carefully consider who you want to act as your attorney(s). The powers granted to them under the document can be extensive, making it essential to select someone you trust to make decisions for you. While you can choose as many attorneys as you like, it is important to think about the practical implications of having multiple people acting together. You retain control over your affairs by selecting not only who will act for you but also how they are to act together and any restrictions or guidance to place on the use of the document. Consideration should also be given concerning whether your chosen Attorneys are capable of acting together and whether they have the time to dedicate to the role. See Acting as an Attorney or Deputy for more information.
