A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document whereby a donor (eg. yourself) entrusts a personally selected attorney or attorneys to deal with certain personal matters once they themselves lack the capacity to do so.
In this article, Lasting Power of Attorney: Why you need one and how to get one, Rob Martins at Cheesmans Accountants, shows why an LPA is essential if you want peace of mind – particularly if you own a business.
He also describes the difference between the two types of LPA available, where to get the relevant forms and where to submit them.
Rob Martins is Company Secretary Senior at Cheesmans Accountants. He deals specifically with wills, probate and Lasting Power of Attorney, plus all legal and compliance requirements of Limited Liability Partnerships.
