HELP WITH lpa registration

Your LPA cannot be used until it's registered with the Office of Public Guardian (OPG). Our service ensures a professional is on hand to help you with this crutial part of the process. This is an additional fee, payable by you to the OPG.

 re-SUBMISSION fees

If any mistakes are made within your LPA or during registering, normally half of the registration fee would have to be paid for a re-submission. Our service guarantees cover of any necessary re-submission fees.

What is the difference between a Property and Financial and Health and Welfare LPA? 
PEACE OF MIND
If you don’t have a LPA in place and you lose the ability to manage your affairs, for example through accident or illness, then your family would need to apply to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship Order. This is very costly, time-consuming and emotionally difficult; and comes at a time when your loved one may be struggling to cope. 
TEMPORARY
LPAs can also be used for temporary financial decisions, where someone may be absent abroad for long periods or where a person may have disabilities which makes getting to the bank or paying bills difficult.
YOUR POSSESSIONS
You may think that you don’t need a Property and Financial Affairs LPA if you don’t own your own home or have lots of money, however, this is incorrect. A LPA is needed in any financial situation from state benefits, pensions, bills and bank accounts, as well as property, regardless of whether it is owned or rented.
GOOD HEALTH
Also, you don’t need to have any health or care issues to make a Health and Welfare LPA. It’s a way for you to detail preferences regarding your care in case you can’t make those decisions later on.
