Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)

Power of attorney

There are times when you may require someone to act on your behalf. It is here that you would legally appoint someone to manage your affairs.

This does not mean that you will no longer have control over your affairs, your affairs will remain yours, but it does mean you can request someone to act for you should you need.

There are two main powers of attorney, lasting power of attorney and ordinary power of attorney.

Lasting power of attorney (LPA)

Should you become incapacitated in any way then you can appoint someone to act as a trusted representative on your behalf.

Ordinary power of attorney

These can be created for a specific purpose and a defined period and are often used in matters such as conveyancing transactions.


At Tayntons we are firm believers in planning for the future.
