It is a myth that if you lose mental capacity then your spouse, partner, or parent will automatically be allowed to act on your behalf. Where there is no Lasting Power of Attoney (LPA) then you have no one authorised to act on your behalf (yes that includes your spouse).

We consider it important that all clients should have their Lasting Powers of Attorney created. They simplify matters enormously and it is the only way you can be sure that the people YOU know and trust will act for you.
