Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)

This document allows a legally appointed attorney to handle the affairs of an individual if they lose the mental capacity to do so themselves. This might include making decisions about property and finances, or health and welfare.

Court of Protection

If someone is unable to make their own decisions due to mental incapacity, a deputy can be given permission to do so for them. A Court of Protection order is only required if an LPA is not already in place.

Letter of Wishes

The purpose of this document is to guide an Executor, Trustee or Attorney with future decisions about an individual’s health, finances, property or, upon their death, their Estate. It can detail, for example, keepsakes a person would like to bestow, or how they feel about invasive health interventions.
