A Lasting Power of Attorney, or LPA for short, appoints another person to act on your behalf if you become unable to deal with your financial or personal affairs because of mental or physical impairment.
Losing mental capacity without an LPA in place could mean your family having to go through the very time-consuming and costly process of applying to the courts of protection.
LPA forms can be very daunting and not taking Lasting Power of Attorney advice could prove to be very costly if your family needed to apply to the courts of protection because the process of registering powers had not been carried out correctly.
There are two types of LPA, a Property and Financial affairs LPA and a Health and Welfare LPA.
We charge £100 per LPA. This includes a home or office consultation where we can come and discuss the various requirements and answer any questions you may have.
A Lasting Power of Attorney is not valid until it has been registered at the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG). The current fee for registering a Lasting Power of Attorney with the OPG is up to £82 per power, a donor may be entitled to an exemption or remission of the application fees based on their financial circumstances.
