Lasting Power of Attorney


As we get older we may lose the ability to make important decisions about our lives. Lasting power of attorney is a legal document that allows you to appoint someone to make decisions for you should you lose the mental capacity to do so. This could be a member of your family, or a close friend. 

Decisions that become the responsibility of this person could include financial issues to do with bank accounts, property, or healthcare. 

At Temperley Taylor, we have an experienced team of solicitors committed to providing the best advice on securing your assets. Contact one of our legal advisors today at our Middleton office on 0161 643 2411 or our Heywood office on 01706 623 511. You could also fill in our online enquiry and we will be in touch. 

Types of Power of Attorney

Creating an LPA is an effective way of safeguarding your finances and the future welfare of your family. Our dedicated team of legal advisors will take into consideration all your needs before advising you on the most suitable LPA for our situation. 

There are two types of LPA available, with different legal responsibilities:

  • Property & Affairs LPA - This allows you to choose someone to make decisions about your finances, operate your bank accounts, make investment decisions and buy/sell property.
  • Personal Welfare LPA - You select someone to make decisions about your health and welfare - such as where you live and what care and medical treatment you will receive
