Enduring Power of Attorney

If you made an Enduring Power of Attorney prior to October 2007 this is still perfectly valid.

Whilst you have your mental capacity your attorneys are able to act for you without needing to register the Enduring Power of Attorney.

They simply need to show the Enduring Power of Attorney to the organisations with which they wish to liaise on your behalf.

If you lose your mental capacity

If you lose your mental capacity at any stage your attorneys must register the Enduring Power of Attorney with the Office of the Public Guardian.

We can advise your attorneys as to when registration is necessary and can guide them through the registration process.
