Lasting Power of Attorney for property and financial affairs:
This type of Power of Attorney lets you appoint someone to act on your behalf and make decisions relating to your finances or property. This can be anything from paying your bills or rent, to selling your house. Unlike a Lasting Power of Attorney for health and welfare, this person can make decisions whilst you still retain the capacity to make them for yourself.
Lasting Power of Attorney for health and welfare:
This type of Power of Attorney lets you appoint someone to act on your behalf and make decisions relating to your personal health and welfare. This person can only use the power when you lack the capacity to make your own decisions. They can decide things such as where you live or the acceptance or refusal of life-sustaining treatment.
