Lasting Powers of Attorney
Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA)
As we get older the risk of losing capacity (the legal ability to make a decision) increases so everyone should consider putting LPAs in place as a form of insurance – so that you can choose who will step in to help if you lose the ability to make your own decisions.
An LPA is a document that allows you to appoint other people (your attorneys) to manage your affairs and make decisions on your behalf.
There are two types of LPA:
Property & Affairs LPAs
Health & Welfare LPAs
You can have either one or both. Having well-drafted LPAs is vital if you own assets – eg. a house, bank accounts, investments or your own business or if you have particular wishes about medical treatment or care. With an LPA you get to choose who to appoint as your attorneys, when they are allowed to act, and what their powers are.

I was in a hurry to write a Will and Thomas Bartram acted on it immediately, extremely sensitively and explained all options very clearly. I did not feel in the least pressurised or rushed and soon felt completely reassured that I was in the right hands to secure my peace of mind. I thoroughly recommend Thomas Bartram and would not hesitate to return for further services.
Exceptional service. I was worried I wouldn’t understand the legal jargon but Tim explained everything clearly. I feel very relieved that my affairs are now all in order. He completed my Will and the health and financial Lasting Powers of Attorney. I would definitely recommend Tim.
