Since 2010, Singapore citizens and permanent residents have been encouraged to utilise the Lasting Power of Attorney, otherwise known as the LPA, to protect their interests but many in Singapore are still uncertain or unaware about it. Unfortunately, less than 2% of Singaporeans have done an LPA. This book seeks to encourage more people to do the LPA by explaining in clear terms how you can complete the LPA Form 1. Not just a book about the what and how, it first sets out its importance, why it is needed and the dire consequences of not having one. It also dispels myths and misconceptions about LPAs. The book provides interesting cases studies of real-life situations to illustrate the function of the LPA and contains references to other countries and how the LPA and equivalents operate in those jurisdictions.
