Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)
An LPA is a legal document that allows you to choose someone that you trust to make decisions on your behalf about your property, affairs and/or your personal welfare at a time in the future when you may lack the mental capacity to make those decisions yourself.
Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPA)
Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) has now been replaced by a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA). This means that you cannot make any changes to an existing EPA or make a new one. However, if you have an unregistered EPA, it can still be used.
