What is a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)?
An LPA allows your loved ones to take care of you and your finances if you become unable to do so.
There are two types: Property and financial affairs and health and welfare LPA.
An LPA ensures that should you become unable to manage your own affairs, the person you appoint can manage things on your behalf.
This may save you a great deal of money and distress, and assurances that your affairs are handled correctly and quickly.
