Difference between a Lasting Power of Attorney and a Will

by | Feb 18, 2018

A will operates only after the testator’s (will-maker) death. The LPA operates after the donor loses his mental capacity. The Will cannot be used if a person loses his mental capacity.

When does a person lack mental capacity?

Under the Mental Capacity Act, a person is defined to lack capacity if he is “unable to make a decision for himself in relation to the matter because of an impairment of, or a disturbance in the functioning of, the mind or brain”.
