Exploring the differences between deputyship and Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA)
Broadly speaking, Deputy Orders and Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA) result in the same outcome; the legal appointment of someone who can make decisions regarding health, welfare and finances of a person who is deemed to lack the mental capacity to make these decisions for themselves, however circumstances necessitating the appointment and the procedures which must be followed are quite different.
During this bite-size session solicitor and lecturer Safda Mahmood will explore the use of LPAs and encourage viewers to consider the circumstances in which a deputyship application may need to be made instead.
Safda will examine both the forms which must be used and the procedure which must be followed when making LPA and deputyship applications. Safda will also provide useful tips and advice on how to complete each to ensure that your applications proceed without issue.
Not only does this course provide a useful overview of the differences between Deputyship and LPA, making it ideal for those new to private client work, the practical nature of the session means it is also an invaluable refresher for those already in practice.
