After a Will, this has to be the most important document that you will need to prepare.  These cover the situations should you become mentally incapable of managing your affairs.

They take two forms:

1. Property and Affairs

This deals with your financial affairs e.g. paying bills or selling your house. Without this document, someone will need to be appointed as your deputy under the Office of the Public Guardian. This is a long complicated and expensive procedure. A Property and Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney avoids these complications. 

2. Welfare

This deals with issues like decisions over life sustaining treatment. It gives your attorneys a lot more power than your next of kin would otherwise have without it.
