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 a Lasting Power of Attorney (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.
What our customers say about us
"Quite frankly you have been brilliant, supportive and kind, most of all very well informed, professional and very clear on the path to take. You supported me every step of the way and achieved the most positive outcome far beyond my expectations and your support during this difficult time was constant."
"I found Hepburn Delaney to be totally professional, compassionate and very understanding. All the team have been brilliant to deal with. A special thank you to Rebecca Delaney; without her being at the end of the phone when a crisis happened I could not have coped. I would strongly recommend Hepburn Delaney to anyone who needs a solicitor with the personal touch."
"I would like to thank Gemma for her outstanding work on my case. Her expertise and attention to detail were tremendously valuable."
