TWO TYPES OF LASTING POWERS OF ATTORNEY
Property and Financial Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney
The Property and Financial Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney gives your Attorney/s authority to access your money to pay your bills or to sell your property should you need to raise cash to pay for care for example. You can impose conditions and restrictions on your Attorneys if there are things you would rather they did or didn’t do.
Health and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney
The Health and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney allows your Attorney/s to make decisions about your personal welfare such as medical treatment. You may want this if you have complicated family circumstances and you feel that your relatives may argue if they were asked by a medical professional to make a decision for you. A Lasting Power of Attorney can be used if you have specific wishes that you would like to be respected should you need life-saving treatment. This type of Lasting Power of Attorney can only be used to make decisions on your behalf if you lack mental capacity to do so yourself.
