Lasting Powers of Attorney Explained:

The Lasting Powers of Attorney – Property and Affairs

A Property and Affairs Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) allows you to plan ahead by choosing one or more persons you trust or a professional such as a Trust Corporation (your Attorneys) to make decisions and take appropriate actions on your behalf regarding your property and financial affairs. 

Your Attorney (or Attorneys) can manage your finances and property whilst you still have capacity as well as when you lack capacity. For example, it may be easier for you to give someone else that you trust the powers to carry out tasks such as paying your bills or collecting your benefits or other income.

This might be for lots of reasons: you might find it difficult to get about or be housebound or may find talking on the telephone difficult, or you might be working or living abroad for long periods of time.  For a professional Lasting Powers of Attorney Sussex based firm Jason Coleman Associates offer fully trained, specialist help in your own home, saving you the inconvenience (and expense) of another appointment in office hours to Solicitors.

You can decide what powers and the extent of the powers to give your Attorney(s) when making decisions about any or all of your property and affairs matters. This could include paying your bills, collecting your benefits or selling your house.

This type of LPA does not allow the person(s) you have chosen (your Attorney) to make decisions about your personal welfare. If you want someone to be able to make personal welfare decisions on your behalf you will need to make a Personal Welfare LPA.

For Lasting Powers of Attorney Sussex clients are well served by a home visit from Jason Coleman Associates.  It will set your mind at rest and plan ahead for a future time when you may not be so able to deal with important matters.  When you want to make your Lasting Powers of Attorney Eastbourne clients please call us to discuss your needs.

 

The Lasting Powers of Attorney - Personal Welfare

A Personal Welfare Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) allows you to plan ahead with regard to your personal healthcare and welfare by choosing one or more people to make decisions on your behalf.  When you want to make arrangements for a Lasting Powers of Attorney Eastbourne firm Jason Coleman Associates is there to help.  We serve local clients from around Eastbourne and all around in the County of Sussex.

These personal welfare decisions can only be taken by somebody else (a close friend or family member) when you lack the ability to make decisions regarding your treatment or other personal matters for yourself; for example if you are unconscious or because of the onset of a condition such as dementia.

The Attorney(s) you appoint to make personal welfare decisions will only be able to use this power once the LPA has been registered and provided that you cannot make the required decision for yourself.  For a professional Lasting Powers of Attorney Sussex based firm Jason Coleman Associates offer specialist help in your own home, saving you the inconvenience of making an appointment in office hours to Solicitors.

You can decide to give your Attorney the powers to make decisions about any or all of your personal welfare matters, including healthcare matters. This could involve some significant decisions, such as:

• giving or refusing consent to particular types of health care, including medical treatment decisions; or

• whether you continue to live in your own home, perhaps with help and support from social services, or whether residential care would be more appropriate for you.

You may wish your Attorney(s) to have the powers to make decisions about 'life-sustaining treatment', if you do then you have to expressly give your chosen Attorney(s) the powers to make such decisions by completing sections 6 and 12 of the LPA form.

You can also give your Attorney(s) the powers to make decisions about day-to-day aspects of your personal welfare, such as your diet, your dress, or your daily routine. It is up to you which of these decisions you want to allow your Attorney to make.
