Make A Lasting Power Of Attorney In Derbyshire

Are you protected in case something happens to you?

Did you know that without a Lasting Power of Attorney there is no one with the legal authority to manage your affairs? Some people believe that if something was to happen to them or a loved one their spouse or children would be automatically able to deal with their bank accounts and other interests. This is simply not the case.

As medical advances allow us to live longer, more and more families are being confronted by the problem caused by the mental incapacity of a family member. Also, if you were to have an accident or illness you may not be able to make decisions for yourself.

Careful planning can reduce the impact of mental incapacity on you and your family. Preparation makes a difficult situation less demanding and stressful and also less costly.

A Lasting Power of Attorney (or LPA) allows you to plan in advance

  • What decisions can be made on your behalf.

  • The people who can make those decisions.

  • And you can give guidance to the people making decisions.

To make a Lasting Power of Attorney you need to have Mental Capacity. If a family member or loved one has already lost mental capacity, then you may need to consider a Deputyship.


A Lasting Power of Attorney or Deputyship is effective during the donor’s lifetime. If you want to decide what happens after you pass away then you need to consider making a Will.
