Lasting powers of attorney

A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a legal document that lets you select one or more people to help you make decisions, or to take decisions on your behalf. This means you have more control over what happens to you if can’t make decisions yourself, such as following an accident or illness. We can prepare and register lasting powers of attorney for you and make applications to appoint deputies.
