3. Make a lasting power of attorney

You can make a lasting power of attorney (LPA) online or using paper forms.

Either way, you need to get other people to sign the forms, including the attorneys and witnesses.

You can get someone else to use the online service or fill in the paper forms for you, for example a family member, friend or solicitor.

Make an LPA online

Create an account to start your LPA.

You can:

  • get help and guidance at each step
  • save your forms and complete them later
  • review your answers and fix any mistakes

You need to print out the forms and sign them when you’ve finished.
