Paper forms and guidance to create and register a lasting power of attorney (LPA).
Paper forms and guidance to make:
- a lasting power of attorney (LPA) for financial decisions
- an LPA for health and care decisions
You can download a complete pack of documents for each type of LPA or individual forms and guidance. You use the same form both to make and to register your LPA.
If you are downloading a complete pack of documents, look on your computer’s desktop or downloads folder for a file with ‘LPA’ in the title and ending with ‘.zip’. Double click on this file and your computer will unpack a folder containing all the documents you need. You can fill in these forms on your computer and then print them out and send them to the Office of the Public Guardian at the address shown on the form.
Alternatively you can make a lasting power of attorney online - it’s easier.
You can also request an LPA application pack by post.
If your LPA was made on forms LPA114, LPA117, LPA PW or LPA PA, and signed and dated correctly up until 1 January 2016, you need to download a separate registration form.
To request any document in an alternative format such as Braille, audio or large print, please email email@example.com. Include your address and telephone number and the title of the document you need.
