There are two types of LPA:
LPA – Financial Decisions – this enables your Attorneys to make decisions about your financial affairs; for example how to manage your bank accounts, other investments and any property you own.
LPA – Health and Care Decisions – this enables your Attorneys to make decisions about your personal welfare, which could mean making a decision about which care home you will reside in, or whether you consent to life sustaining treatment (similar to a Living Will or Advance Directive).
Victoria advises extensively on LPAs; drafting, preparing and advising on their usage, and also acts as an Attorney under an LPA for Financial Decisions for clients who need to appoint a professional Attorney. She can also advise on the usage of Enduring Powers of Attorney ('EPAs'), or on drafting Advance Statements, Living Wills or Advance Directives.
If you are looking to put LPAs in place for an elderly relative, we suggest that you download our advice leaflet on LPAs and discuss this with them. If they would like to put LPAs in place, please get in touch to discuss how best to move forwards.

Victoria offers fixed fees for LPAs upon application. Please get in touch for a quotation.
