Have you or a loved one made an Enduring Power of Attorney? Enduring Powers of Attorney were replaced in October 2007 by Lasting Powers of Attorney.
Will your Enduring Power of Attorney still be valid?
In most cases if you made and signed an Enduring Power of Attorney before October 2007 it will still be valid. However, you will need to make sure that it’s still up to date. We offer a free Enduring Powers of Attorney checking service.
If you have been named as an attorney in an Enduring Power of Attorney and the person who made the document is, or is starting to become, unable to manage their own affairs, you will need to apply to the Office of the Public Guardian to register the document.
Our solicitors can support you through this process and manage all the legal formalities on your behalf. We can also advise you on the requirements of your role as attorney and help to ensure you are fulfilling all legal obligations
