*If LPAs are being produced whether registered or unregistered then it is mandatory that one of our Legal Document Witnessing options is chosen – this is because of the enormous impact getting it wrong can have in the future.

 

** If LPAs are being produced and not being registered then it is strongly advised we store them – this is to ensure the minute that they are needed we can be called to get them registered eliminating the risk of them being mislaid or lost and not being able to be registered and used
