  • Lasting Powers of Attorney

26 July, 2017

There are a number of reasons why you might need someone to make decisions for you or act on your behalf.

It could just be temporary. For example, if you are in hospital and need help with everyday things such as bills are paid for.  Or you may need to make more long-term plans, for example, you have been diagnosed with dementia.  There are two types of Powers of Attorney:

  • Ordinary Power of Attorney: If you want to give someone full access to make decisions and take action concerning your finances while you still have mental capacity you can set up an ordinary power of attorney.  This is a legal document giving someone else authority to act on your behalf.
  • Lasting Power of Attorney: A lasting power of attorney gives someone you trust the legal authority to make decisions on your behalf if either you are unable to in the future or you no longer wish to make decisions yourself.
