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.
