The key to planning your future is writing a Lasting Power Of Attorney, as long as it doesn’t fall short of the high expectations and strict regulations.

Your lasting power of attorney will protect you and your loved ones from the confusion and stress if you are unable to make decisions for yourself. By collecting your thoughts and straightening them out on paper you will ensure those who may have to make the decisions for you, know exactly what it is you would have done.

But if somehow, there was a mistake, something not included or in the wrong place, pages missing or misspelt names, it would mean the Power Of Attorney would be rejected.

If your Power of Attorney is rejected for any reason, it would be a costly experience. By going through the rewriting and the procedure of re-creating your LPA (Lasting Power Of Attorney) you are going to feel a certain amount of stress and turbulence, especially if the mistake was just something simple.

Unfortunately, if you were deemed mentally incapacitated it would mean those around you will be going through a lengthy court of protection proceeding, which still may not come to the conclusion that you had hoped for.

More than 10% of LPAs received have errors that mean they won’t be accepted. Paying for a second registration fee or redrafting can be considerably more expensive than it should and will only add to the distressing nature of the situation as it is.

The most important aspect of writing your LPA is to get your drafts checked by someone with the knowledge and experience to advise and edit where necessary. If you want help from the start find a company you trust, one recommended. In making sure your LPA is watertight with all the T’s crossed and the I’s dotted, will secure you and your loved ones in focusing on the most important things in life, being together.
