Registering your EPA

The Advice

Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPAs) were replaced by Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs) in October 2007 but existing EPAs are still valid and cover decisions in relation to your property and financial affairs.  However this document does not cover any decisions in respect of your health and welfare.

Your attorneys will be under a duty to register your EPA with the Office of the Public Guardian once you have lost capacity and will not be authorised to use it until registration has taken place. Once registered, you will no longer be able to revoke or change the document.

At Hepburn Delaney we assist with and organise for EPAs to be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian. We are also able to offer advice if you are considering to update your EPA by way of creating an LPA.

If you are satisfied with the contents of your EPA but would like a document to reflect your health and welfare needs we are able to advise you in relation to creating a Health and Welfare LPA.
