Often health care professionals are the first to suggest the need for an LPA. Used in cases where someone is, or may be, becoming frail or in some way vulnerable.
The Attorney can act in the interest of that person when they no longer wish to be in charge of their own affairs or, are unable to do so. We have prepared hundreds of LPA documents since they were introduced in 2007. When signed and completed the documents have to be registered at the Office of the Public Guardian.
The steps to be taken need to be carefully followed and usually take between two and three months.
