LPAs: Pointers & Pitfalls- In-House Training

Whilst the pandemic remains with us, clients continue to turn their minds to putting their affairs in order and planning for the future. With health concerns in the forefront of our minds, having Lasting Powers of Attorney in place has become a priority for many clients.

In this 1-hour training session, we will consider common pitfalls and pointers when preparing and advising on both Property & Financial Affairs LPAs and Health & Welfare LPAs.

Delegates will learn about the following:

  • Appointment of joint and replacement attorneys and the requirement for precise drafting.
  • Signing and witnessing the LPA and arrangements regarding the Certificate Provider.
  • Making the unlawful compulsory and avoiding the consequences of invalid provisions.
  • Section 12 of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the power of the attorneys to make gifts – what is authorised and what is not permitted by law.
  • Power of attorneys regarding ‘life-sustaining treatment’.
  • Enabling LPAs to be used as ordinary powers of attorney.
  • Registration and avoiding procedural issues.

Training can either be delivered in person at your place of business or via live webinar to suit your requirements.

Should you opt to have your in-house training delivered by live webinar, our specialist systems give us the option to provide you with recordings and course materials which allows you and your team to refer back to the training via our website at any time should you wish to do so. Alternatively, if any of your team are unable to attend the live in-house training these facilities mean that you don’t have to worry about them missing out and you can go about your day, reassured by the knowledge that they can carry out their required training at a time to suit your business needs.

For face-to-face training, unfortunately it is not possible for us to provide recordings of the sessions however, all course training materials will still be provided.

Certificates of completion are also provided for delegates attending in-house training sessions.
