Preparing and registering a Lasting Power of Attorney
Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) are legal agreements which allow close family members or trusted third parties to act on someone else’s best interests should they need to.
We provide help and advice to families with elderly relatives and can set up LPA agreements. This can be done before and after individuals take up residence in a care home, and will help plan for future legal requirements before any financial or medical emergency happens.
If you have a family member, even one who is in a care home or is thinking of going into a care home, we can prepare your LPA and register it with the OPG.
We offer appointments at our office, in your own home, care home or hospital at a time to suit you. We can also check and register your LPA even if we have not prepared the form for you.

Sometimes it is too late to prepare a Lasting Power of Attorney. If someone has already lost capacity a Lasting Power of attorney cannot be prepared. Unfortunately, this means a long and complicated application to the Court of Protection to enable someone to manage that person’s affairs. This includes obtaining medical and financial evidence. It's something we do regularly for our clients so don't hesitate to get in touch if you think we can help.
