Why Make a Lasting Power of Attorney?
Q. What does a Lasting Power of Attorney mean for me and what does it allow my attorneys to do on my behalf?
A. A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legal document authorising one or more people (attorneys) the power to act on behalf of another person (the donor) when the donor is no longer able or willing to make decisions for themselves. Making a Lasting Power of Attorney is as important as making a Will. It can save people unnecessary trauma and expense and makes sure that the donors wishes are followed whatever happens.

If you own a business then perhaps you should consider a Business Lasting Power of Attorney to allow someone to run your business if you are unable.
This would allow your attorneys to:
- Pay the wages
- Pay suppliers invoices
- Access the business bank account
- Deal with insurance
- Make decisions about contracts
- Deal with the business property
- RUN YOUR BUSINESS
If you do not have a Lasting Power of Attorney and lose capacity then to manage your affairs and welfare, someone is going to have to apply to be your Attorney through the Court of Protection. This is expensive and takes time.
