Where to get a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in Suffolk and Cambridge
“Having a Lasting Power of Attorney should be as common and natural as making a Will”
Jack Straw, former Lord Chancellor
There is a common misconception that Lasting Powers of Attorney are only for old people. Heather Bateman was a middle aged woman when her husband was knocked down by a car. Have a look at her story on the BBC clip https://goo.gl/oCDzh4.
I have a Will so why do I need a Lasting Power of Attorney?
A Will protects your beneficiary’s interests after you die; a Lasting Power of Attorney protects you, your family and your estate while you are still alive but, for whatever reason, you cannot look after matters for yourself.
What is an LPA?
LPAs were created under the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and replaced the old Enduring Power of Attorney.
· Do you want to guarantee that the people you love and trust can make decisions for you on your care, if you are unable to make these decisions yourself?
· Do you want to avoid the distress and substantial costs involved in applying for these powers from The Court of Protection should you suddenly lose mental capacity?
· Do you want to avoid the risk that your family could have no say in your welfare if you do not have an LPA in place?
