A power granted by a person with capacity to another person to empower them to make property or financial decisions and carry out property or financial related actions on the person’s behalf.  The power can continue or ‘last’ after the person has lost capacity but the Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) should be registered with the Court of Protection to be valid. LPAs for property and finance only empower the Attorney to make decisions in relation to property and financial affairs and not in relation to health and wellbeing, or care.
