Enduring Powers of Attorney were replaced by Lasting Powers of Attorney on the 1stOctober 2007. However, if you made an Enduring Power of Attorney before that date, it is still valid. Enduring Powers of Attorney only cover money and property and not health and welfare decisions. You may therefore wish to make a health and welfare Lasting Power of Attorney to cover that aspect of your life. Also, Lasting Powers of Attorney offer more flexibility in the appointment of attorneys and allow you to appoint a replacement attorney or attorneys should your first choice be unwilling or unable to act at the relevant time.
