Lasting Powers of Attorney


The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) will be launching a redesigned Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) system early next year to make it simpler, clearer and faster to apply for LPAs. This is welcomed, and the OPG’s controversial suggestions to make it a fully online process and to remove some of the safeguards built into the legislation to protect elderly and vulnerable donors have been put on hold. There were real fears that this could lead to more fraud and financial abuse.


An LPA is a legal document which allows you to give another person authority to make decisions on your behalf if you were to lose mental capacity in the future. The Government is keen to encourage them and, with dementia on the increase, they are becoming all the more an essential part of our planning.
