Why do I need a Lasting Power of Attorney?
To avoid the lengthy and pricey process of your loved ones becoming your ‘deputy’, you need to fill in the Power of Attorney forms. If you do not fill in the forms then you will have to apply through court. The Power of Attorney forms allow a speedy and easy process of your loved ones becoming in control if you lose your mental capacity.
To allow another person to become in control of your finance or health if you lose the capacity to do so, you must create a lasting power of attorney (LPA). The LPA allows another individual to legally have control over aspects that you not be able to control anymore. Illnesses and accidents can cause young people to become incapacitated so therefore LPA is not just for elderly people, young people can also be exposed.
Without the LPA, loved ones taking control of your belongings and finances becomes a very long process and can become quite costly. LPA allows you to avoid long delays and high prices when allowing a love one to take control.
