Lasting Powers of Attorney


A Lasting Power of Attorney gives somebody else authority to make decisions and act on your behalf.

There are two types of LPA:

  • A lasting power of attorney for health and welfare;
  • A lasting power of attorney for property and financial matters

Enduring Powers of Attorney


Enduring powers of attorney made before 1st October 2007 are still valid. They relate to financial matters, not health and welfare.

If the donor is losing or has lost mental capacity, the EPA needs to be registered with the office of the Public Guardian. We can handle the registration process for you.

Other Powers of Attorney


If you need a power of attorney for a specific transaction (for example, a property sale whilst you are abroad), please contact us.

Court of Protection


If you know someone who has lost mental capacity, an application can be made to the Court of Protection for one or more people to be appointed as his/her deputy to deal with financial matters or – more rarely – health and welfare issues. For most applications, we offer fixed fees. The fees are fixed by the court.
