Powers of Attorney

The Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) was introduced in 2007 and is now the principal way to give an attorney the authority to look after a person’s financial affairs.

This recent change in the law means that the previous type of power of attorney (Enduring Power of Attorney or EPA) can no longer be created. Existing EPAs do of course continue to be effective.

There are a number of different LPAs available and the new system is considerably more complicated than its predecessor. It is therefore even more important that someone considering an LPA takes the right legal advice.
