What does a lasting power of attorney cover?

A lasting power of attorney can cover either your health and welfare or your property and financial affairs.

If you have a health and welfare LPA, your chosen attorney or attorneys will make decisions about things like your medical treatment and care, your daily routine, where you live, who can visit you, and what you eat and drink.

If you have a property and financial affairs LPA, your chosen attorney or attorneys will manage all your financial affairs, assets and property. Their responsibilities can include making sure your mortgage and other bills are paid, handling any debts, selling property or assets, managing your pensions and other investments, and collecting benefits.
