Why do I need a Lasting Power of Attorney?

Image

An LPA has been described as the most important document that every UK adult should have in place. There are many reasons that makes this statement true and it is not just old age, any one of us could have an accident at any time that could leave us seriously ill in a hospital and, without an LPA in place, your family could be left without the legal power to carry out your wishes and make decisions on your behalf.

In the UK, dementia is the biggest health threat. According to the government, one person in the UK develops dementia every three minutes.

If you or one of your parents develop dementia and lose mental capacity you can not assume that you can make decisions on your parents’ behalf or that your loved ones will be allowed to make decisions for you. You cannot walk into a bank and say “My mum has now got dementia, I need to pay her bills for her, how do I do this?” Without an LPA to give you the legal power to look after your loved one’s financial affairs the bank will freeze their account, you will not have any right to pay any bills for your parent, this includes their care home fees.

If your loved ones do not have an LPA in place for Health and Welfare, then you do not have the right to chose their Care Home, the Local Authority will choose one instead.

If you don’t have a registered Lasting Power of Attorney, your loved ones will need to apply through the Court of Protection to legally have the right to look after you and your affairs, this can take a long time and is very expensive. Don’t leave your family unprotected or leave yourself vulnerable.

Quick FAQ

An LPA is a Legal document that allows a person that you trust (an Attorney) to act on your behalf if you have lost capacity. The LPA needs to be registered with the Office of Public Guardian (OPG) before it can be used and most people use a Solicitor to write their LPA which is expensive and unaffordable.
Here at LPA Online we have written a very simple LPA production tool that guides you through the process of writing your LPA and at a fraction of the cost of your local solicitor.

Start your LPA
Without a Lasting Power of Attorney in place even your partner can not make decisions on your behalf, they can not specify to a doctor what medical treatment that you should have, even though they know what you would and would not like to have done to you. Even joint bank accounts have been frozen and the healthy partner has not been able to get access to their own money. Because the LPA is a legal document giving the people that you trust the right to act on your behalf, they can make sure your mortgage is paid, they can choose your care home and make sure that you are looked after in the way you would wish to be looked after.

Start your LPA
Many people who have heard of an LPA think that it is just for an elderly relative to have before they go into a care home. This could not be further from the truth, an LPA is for everyone, especially anyone who has a family. If you had an accident today and were in hospital for an extended period, who would look after your family? Do they have legal access to your bank account? Can they negotiate a mortgage break if you are in hospital for a long period? The answer is most likely NO. An LPA gives someone that you trust the LEGAL right to look after your affairs.
