Powers of Attorney

 

Lasting power of attorney - Health and welfare  - £105

 

If some day you are no longer able to look after your own health and welfare, i.e. your social and health care needs, this 'Lasting power of attorney - health and welfare' (LPA-HW) will give that power to another person, called your 'attorney'. Once the power comes into effect, your attorney (or attorneys) will have the legal authority to act on your behalf in matters relating to your health and welfare, subject to any restrictions you may place on them. Before the document can be used, however, it must be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian. Your attorney(s) will only be able to act when you lack the capacity to do so yourself, for example, if you are ill, unconscious or because of the onset of a condition such as dementia. This document can only be used in England or Wales.

Use this document if you were appointed an attorney under an enduring power of attorney (EPA) in England & Wales and you need to register the EPA because the donor is, or is becoming, incapable of managing his or her own affairs. You must make this application to register the EPA within 10 working days of serving the last EP1 PG notice, notifying the donor's relatives of your intention to register. If you have not yet served the EP1 PG notice, you should do so now. Please note that you can no longer create EPAs in England & Wales; however, you can continue to register an EPA as long as it was signed before 1 October 2007.

Our Trustpilot reviews

I lost my best friend and Stephensons helped me through this very tough period of being the executor. I found them to be extremely helpful and efficient. They told me exactly how the process would work step by step. They never failed to answer any of the many emails I sent. I felt very fortunate to have had them working for me. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
