Our Lasting Power of Attorney administration process
We have first hand personal experience with the mental, physical and emotional issues encountered with elderly parents.
LPA Services provides a complete ‘done-for-you’ service to take away the headache of going through the Court of Protection as a long and costly alternative.
What We Do
We are passionate about helping families to put in place proactive strategies to support individual members who need help when it matters most. We take the information needed from you about your elected Attorneys (name, address, date of birth, email and telephone numbers); we prepare your Lasting Power of Attorney and registrations documents; send them to you with clear instructions on where you, Attorneys, and witnesses sign; you return the documents to us; we send your completed documents to the Office of the Public Guardian and Notified Person.
Property & Financial Affairs
A few examples of the decisions an Attorney will be allowed to make on the Donor’s behalf and in their best interest are buying or selling of property; opening, closing and operating bank accounts; having access to the Donor’s financial information; claiming, receiving and using benefits and pensions on the Donor’s behalf; dealing with the Donor’s tax affairs; paying the mortgage, rent and household expenses; insuring, maintaining and repairing the property; investing the Donor’s savings; making limited gifts on the Donor’s behalf; paying for any private medical care in place or residential/nursing home fees.
Health & Welfare
Attorneys act on the Donor’s behalf and in their best interest regarding personal welfare. This LPA can only be used when the Donor has lost mental capacity. A few examples of the decisions an Attorney is allowed to make are, where the Donor lives and who they should live with; the Donor’s day to day care; consenting or refusing medical examinations and treatment; arrangements for medical, optical and dental treatment; assessments for and provision of community care services; activities the Donor may take part in such as social or leisure activities, education or training; the Donor’s personal correspondence and papers; rights of access to personal information about the Donor; complaints about the Donor’s treatment if required.
A Lasting Power of Attorney becomes a legal document after it is registered with the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG). It has been known for the OPG to reject any forms that are not signed in the correct place or in a specified sequential order. Our fees for the administration of your LPA includes the OPG’s registration fee (currently £110 per LPA) and we guarantee your papers to be in order before sending them for registration.
