You can only create an LPA if you are aged 18 or over and have capacity (are able to understand what it is and what it means for you). You can get forms for each of the LPAs from the Office of the Public Guardian|.
LPAs must be registered with the Office of Public Guardian before they can be used. This can be done by you if you’re the person making the LPA (also known as the donor) while you’re still capable. Or your attorney can apply to register the LPA at any time before they need to use it. There is a fee to register an LPA. You can phone the Office of Public Guardian to find out the exact fees involved. If you’re on certain benefits you may not have to pay the fee or you may only have to pay part of the fee. The Office of Public Guardian will be able to advise you on this.
You may find it helpful to talk to a solicitor before making an LPA.
