VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE SIGNING AND DATING OF LASTING POWER OF ATTORNEY DOCUMENTS

 

• LASTING POWER OF ATTORNEY DOCUMENTS (LPAs) MUST BE SIGNED AND DATED IN A SPECIFIC ORDER

• THIS IS OUTLINED BELOW

• IF THEY ARE NOT SIGNED AND DATED IN THIS SPECIFIC ORDER THEN THEY WILL NOT BE VALID AND WILL NEED TO BE REPRINTED AND THE PROCESS STARTED AGAIN

• THE COST OF REPRINTING IS £18 PER LPA INCLUDING V.A.T.

 

THIS IS THE ORDER IN WHICH THEY MUST BE SIGNED AND DATED

 

1ST TO SIGN AND DATE IS EACH DONOR (CLIENT) ON SECTION 5 OF THE HEALTH AND WELFARE

LPA AND ALSO TICK SECTION 5 OF THE PROPERTY AND FINANCE LPA AND THEN SIGN AND DATE

SECTION 9 OF BOTH THE HEALTH AND WELFARE LPA AND THE PROPERTY AND FINANCE LPA.

 

THE LPAs MUST THEN BE SENT BACK TO US BY RECORDED DELIVERY OR HAND DELIVERED TO

OUR GORING ROAD BRANCH. IF HAND DELIVERED THEN A RECEIPT FOR THEIR DELIVERY WILL

BE ISSUED.

 

OUR CERTIFICATE PROVIDER WILL THEN SIGN SECTION 10 OF EACH LPAs AS APPLICABLE.

THE CLIENT MUST THEN ARRANGE FOR ALL ATTORNEYS TO SIGN SECTION 11 (IN ANY ORDER).

AFTER ALL ATTORNEYS HAVE SIGNED THEN DONOR SIGNS AND DATES SECTION 15.

 

IF WE ARE STORING OR REGISTERING THE LPAs THEN THEY WILL NEED TO BE SENT BACK TO US

DELIVERED TO OUR SHOP A RECEIPT FOR SAFE DELIVERY WILL BE ISSUED.

 

PLEASE PAY STRICT ATTENTION TO THE ORDER IN WHICH THE LPAs MUST BE SIGNED AND DATED

ESPECIALLY IF WE ARE NOT STORING THEM OR REGISTERING THEM AS YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE

RELIANT UPON LPAs IN THE FUTURE THAT ARE INVALID.

 

We recommend therefore that if storage or registration is not applicable that you take advantage of our document witnessing service to guarantee what you have is able to be relied upon in the future.
