Do I need a lasting power of attorney?

Nobody needs a lasting power of attorney.

However, having an LPA is the only way to ensure that someone you trust is placed in charge of your affairs should you lose the capacity to make decisions for yourself.

If you do not have an LPA, your family can apply for a deputyship order, but its possible that your local authority or medical team could be given responsibility for making decisions on your behalf.
