Activating Lasting Powers of Attorney
Why activate an LPA
When creating a LPA for property and financial affairs, the donor can choose whether they want their attorney to act for them either from the moment of registration, or only when they lose capacity. If it’s the latter and you’re concerned about a donor’s capacity, we can help.
Many professionals and institutions such as solicitors and banks require a mental capacity assessment to evidence a lack of capacity before they will act on the instructions of an attorney.
Our evidence-based assessment identifies if a donor has lost the capacity to manage their property and financial affairs independently – to activate the LPA and give their attorney the authority to act on their behalf.
