What is the difference between EPAs and LPAs?

Posted on 28th July 2020 in Later Life Planning

LPAs came into place in 2007, but before then Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPAs) were available instead. There is no need to worry if you have an EPA, rather than an LPA, as correctly made EPAs are still perfectly valid.
