Cretney & Lush: Lasting and Enduring Powers of Attorney is the leading work on this difficult and growing area of law. The 6th edition has been significantly updated and expanded to take account of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, which introduced the new Lasting Powers of Attorney, enabling the attorney to make personal welfare and healthcare decisions on behalf of the donor of the power, not previously possible with Enduring Powers of Attorney.

Uniquely, this work provides full guidance on both enduring and lasting powers of attorney. It examines the duties and responsibilities that will remain in relation to existing enduring powers of attorney. It then goes on to look at the circumstances in which a Lasting Power of Attorney may be useful and the law and procedure relating to their creation and registration.

Cretney & Lush: Lasting and Enduring Powers of Attorney contains all relevant legislation, prescribed forms and commentary from a leading expert in the field.
