How to make a LPA


Here's eight steps to making a Lasting Power of Attorney


  1. Firstly contact Fishers to arrange an appointment to discuss your requirements. We will then send you confirmation of the appointment.
  2. Attend an initial meeting with one of our friendly team. At this meeting, we will discuss your requirements and we will explain about the different types of Powers of Attorney and how they may be of benefit. We will answer any queries you may have about how Powers of Attorney work, and the different types of decisions that each Power of Attorney can be used for. We will discuss who you should ask to be your Attorneys, and how they can be appointed to help you. We will help you to consider the best way forward for you.
  3. After our initial meeting, we will send you a summary of our discussions and your instructions, together with our Terms and Conditions of Business information. You will need to sign this and return it to us.
  4. Once we have received this, we will prepare draft Powers of Attorney for you to check through.
  5. We then liaise with you to ensure the documents are exactly the way you want them, and that you fully understand all of the implications.
  6. When you are happy with the Powers of Attorney, we will arrange a further appointment for you to sign the documents. We can then assist with obtaining the signatures of your Attorneys (the people you are appointing), and we will then deal with the registration formalities.
  7. Once your Power of Attorney has been completed and registered, we can store the signed documents for you, and provide copies for you to keep at home.
  8. Finally rest assured that our solicitors are highly qualified specialists, and many hold membership of The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, and Solicitors for the Elderly. This showcases their experience and expertise, and our commitment to the highest standards of client care. Our experts are friendly, approachable and understanding, and can help you make new Powers of Attorney specifically tailored to your own personal circumstances, without any stress or worry.
