Property and Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney

property and affairs lasting power of attorneyA Property and Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney allows individuals to appoint a legally authorised person or persons (attorney(s) to make decisions with regard to their property and financial affairs should they become incapable of doing so themselves at some point in the future.

A Property and Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney cannot be used until it has been registered with the Office of the Public Guardian.

It can be registered at any time after it has been made.

You can choose as many Attorneys as you wish. (further information)

A Property and Affairs Attorney does not have the power to make decisions with regard to your personal welfare unless you have also written a Personal Welfare LPA and used the same attorney(s).

The Property and Affairs LPA document should incorporate a certificate which must be signed by an independent person chosen by the donor (you) who must confirm that, in their opinion, the donor is making the Lasting Power of Attorney of their own free will and that the donor understands its purpose and the powers they are giving to the attorney(s).

A Lasting Power of Attorney may be cancelled using a deed of revocation at any time, if you have the mental capacity to do so. This may be before or after registration.

It is necessary to inform the attorney(s) of the cancellation as the attorneys' authority does not cease until they receive notice of the revocation. A copy of the deed of revocation should be sent to each attorney. If the Lasting Power of Attorney has been registered then a copy should also be sent to the Office of the Public Guardian, stating that the attorney(s) have been notified.
