Registration of Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA)
On October 1 2007, the Enduring Power of Attorney was replaced by the Lasting Power of Attorney. An Enduring Power of Attorney that was made and signed before October 1 2007 can still be used.
Existing EPAs can only be used to deal with property and financial affairs, the Attorneys appointed under this document cannot make decisions for the Donor in relation to their health and welfare. If the donor loses mental capacity this the EPA must be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian.
We can assist with the registration including advice on who needs to be notified.
Please be aware that the above is a simple summarised explanation of Enduring Powers of Attorney based upon the law as at August 2017 and is subject to change. For specific advice in relation to your individual circumstances please contact a member of the team below.
