Over The Phone LPA
Give us a call and we’ll go over what you want in your LPA, discussing and resolving any issues that may arise. If you don’t have all the information to hand, we’ll let you know what’s needed then arrange to call you back, before creating the documents for you. We’ll then post these to you with instructions how to sign the forms prior to their registration.
Costs For Over The Phone LPAs
We’ll make an LPA for Financial Decisions or Health and Welfare Decisions.
We’ll make an LPA for both Financial Decisions and Health and Welfare Decisions.
In addition, the OPG charge a fee of £82 to register each LPA.
The Dangers Of Not Having An LPA In Place
If you don’t have an LPA in place and then lose capacity, the situation can arise where no one has the legal authority to make decisions for you. If you’re married or in a civil partnership, you may have assumed that your spouse would automatically be able to deal with your bank account and pensions, and make decisions about your healthcare, if you lose the ability to do so. This is not the case. Without an LPA, they won’t have the authority. The only alternative then is for someone to apply to the Court of Protection to be appointed as a Deputy, which can take months and cost a great deal more than an LPA. Deputies must also pay an annual fee to the Court of Protection and submit an annual report of their actions.
