Enduring Powers of Attorney

Home » » Enduring Powers of Attorney

Since 1 October 2017, no further Enduring Powers of Attorney can be made (they were replaced by Lasting Powers of Attorney).

If you made an Enduring Power of Attorney prior to this date, it is still valid and can be used. If, however, your Enduring Power of Attorney is required to be changed then you will need to make a Lasting Power of Attorney.

If your attorney believes that you have become or are becoming mentally incapable, then your Enduring Power of Attorney is required to be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian.

Your Enduring Power of Attorney only covers your Property and Financial Affairs so you may wish to consider making a Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare and/or a Living Will/Advance Directive, to deal with your Health and Welfare matters.

Oakwood Solicitors will offer you a free half hour appointment to review your existing Enduring Power of Attorney to ensure that it continues to meet your needs.
