If they have only have LPA but without a will, after passed on what will happen to their assets if no immediate family members to inherit it. Can their donee act of their behalf?
Your LPA donee can only make decisions on your behalf relating to personal welfare, in the event that you lose mental capacity. Without a will, once death occurs, your donee will not be able to act on your behalf to manage the inheritance. By writing a will, you can ensure that your inheritance will be managed according to your wishes. Otherwise, your assets will be distributed according to the Intestate Succession Act (ISA).
