What is a Lasting Power of Attorney?
A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document, signed by you (the donor) and the attorneys you trust and have chosen, which allows your attorneys to make decisions on your behalf while you are alive.
It is completely separate to your Will and neither have any bearing on the other, indeed your LPAs come to an end when you die. LPAs are most commonly thought of in relation to a loss of mental capacity e.g. through dementia.
