Lasting Power of Attorney - Property and Financial Affairs

This document allows you to nominate up to six people and/or a trust corporation to be your attorneys and make decisions about your property and financial affairs in the event that you can no longer do so yourself. You can also set restrictions and leave guidance on what decisions they can make.

To become legally binding this document must be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG), and the registration forms you need to do this are included with your Property and Financial Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA).

A separate fee will be payable to the Office of the Public Guardian. You can find details of the fees payable on their website.

Once registered, your attorneys can begin acting on your behalf. It is possible to include a condition that the LPA should not be used until you have lost the capacity to make decisions.

This pack includes:

  • LP1F Lasting Power of Attorney for property and financial affairs (COMPLETE FIRST)
  • LP1F Registration sections
  • LP3 Notice of intention to register a Lasting Power of Attorney

LP1F Lasting power of attorney for property and financial affairs (View guidance notes)
Try
If some day you are no longer able to look after your own financial affairs, due to factors like illness, accident or the onset of dementia, this document will give that power to another person, called your 'attorney'. Once the power comes into effect, your attorney (or attorneys) will have the legal authority to act on your behalf in property and financial matters.

You will need to register this document with the Office of the Public Guardian, who will charge a fee for this.

This document can only be used in England or Wales.

Service level: Self Service
You only need to use this form if you have used our 'LP1F Lasting power of attorney for property and financial affairs' (LPA) but did not want to register it straight away. In this case, sections 12-15 in your LPA will be blank. You can use this form to complete a fresh copy of those sections, and add them to your LPA in place of the blank sections. You can then send your LPA to the Office of the Public Guardian for registration (they will charge a fee for this). If your LPA already has sections 12-15 completed, you do not need to use this form.
LP3 Notice of intention to register a lasting power of attorney (View guidance notes)
Try
Service level: Self Service
Before registering a lasting power of attorney (LPA) you have to use this form to notify certain people of your intention to register it. These people, if any, will be listed in the LPA. This document will create a copy of the form for each person listed, for you to send to them.
