Power Of Attorney Checklist

Hello, my name is Adrian Chambers and welcome to our web pages on Lasting Powers of Attorney.

There are strict guidelines that must be followed when a Lasting Power of Attorney is made and this page sets out some of things that should be taken into account.

If you’re thinking about making a Power of Attorney, contact us via telephone on Corby 01536 276300 or Kettering 01536 311690 or use our online contact form.

When you instruct us to create a Power of Attorney, there is information we need to obtain from you. If you refer to this page, you will be able to use it to gather the information required.

Donor – Person Making The Power Of Attorney

We will require the following information about the Donor:

1. Address

2. Date of birth

3. Contact telephone number

4. Email address

5. Whether you want to make a Property and Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney or Health and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney.

Attorneys

For each of the attorneys we require the following information:

1. Address

2. Date of birth

3. Contact telephone number

4. Occupation

5. Email

6. Relationship to Donor.

Attorney’s Power

Before making the Power of Attorney, you need to consider whether the Attorneys are to act (in relation to making decisions on your behalf):

1. Jointly

2. Jointly and severally

3. Jointly for some, and jointly/severally for others

4. Whether any restrictions or conditions are to be put in place (and details of these)

5. Whether any guidance words are to be used to assist the Attorneys

6. Any charges for the Attorneys services

7. Any other information relating to the Attorneys and their power.

You should also consider listing a ‘replacement attorney’. This covers the situation whereby one or even both attorneys cannot act on your behalf either by choice or statutory (ie if they die or become bankrupt).

Notification

When registering a Power of Attorney, you do have to notify individuals to make them aware of your intention to create the Power of Attorney. This is primarily used to safeguard the Donor as it is a very important legal document. Therefore we will require the following information:

1. The two people to be notified (you can have up to 5)

2. Their address and contact details.
