Step-by-Step Guide

Four Steps to creating a Lasting Power of Attorney…

Whilst a Will details your wishes for what is to happen after you have passed away, a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) details what you want to happen whilst you are alive but have become incapacitated for any reason.

Therefore it often makes sense to discuss creating an LPA during your Will preparation meeting with your WSL Legal Consultant.

However, you can create a Lasting Power of Attorney at any time.

Step One

Contact us by phoning 0208 380 0349, by emailing or by completing our web form. We’ll have a short telephone conversation about your situation, and then if appropriate we’ll arrange for one of our Legal Consultants to visit you. This can happen in your home at a time that’s convenient for you, daytime or evening, seven days a week.

Step Two

During the appointment your WSL Legal Consultant will go through everything with you in detail. They will explain the legal powers of Attorneys, who you can appoint, the different types of LPAs and how to structure your LPA to ensure that your Attorney is able to act on your behalf.

Step Three

The Legal Consultant will then ensure that they have a full understanding of your circumstances and will carefully record your wishes and decisions.

They will then take payment so that our legal department can start drafting your LPA documents.

Step Four

Within 28 days of your appointment our legal department will send your LPA documents for your approval, along with clear guidelines on how to sign and witness them.

After this, they are sent to be officially registered with the Office of the Public Guardian, which must be done for them to become effective.

WSL makes the whole process as quick and easy as possible for you, giving you the best advice and the highest standards of service.

“I am just about to start filling in the probate forms and I thought I would send you a quick mail to say thank you for the wonderful service and help that you have provided us. I met with Radhika and Zafna on Monday and I can say without doubt that they far exceeded my expectations, so much so that I felt the need to write this email to you today. Not only did they print out the necessary forms and letters for me, but they were able to understand the intricacies of my situation and resolve uncertainties with HMRC there and then. It looks like you have a couple of able deputies who are able to give clients the reassurance and advice that they are looking for in a professional and kind manner. My sister and I will certainly be using your company going forward for our own will needs, and I can confidently say that I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone seeking will writing and related services.”Dan Sivagnanaretnam, London
“We’d put off writing a Will for years. We both work full-time so WSL’s home visits were ideal. We found the staff to be very informative and friendly and they handled the whole business of Will writing with great sensitivity.”Mr & Mrs Johnson, Middlesex
“I am very grateful for all your help with my late husband’s Will, probate and the Land Registry. Everything went very smoothly and quickly giving me a chance to move on. Thank you so much, I would highly recommend your company to friends and family.”Mrs Phillips, Kent
