I got POA for both parents at the end of 2010 and received an office copy of each document. This has the pinprick verification at the bottom of each page and Office Copy page 1 of x along the top. Where there are blank spaces the OPG has stamped it.
I have been told by two different organisations recently (a share company and ns&i) that an office copy now needs to be hand-signed by a solicitor on every single page (a stamp will not do) and I have to send it to them.
Have the rules changed? I reckon it will cost me a fortune to get a solicitor to handwrite their signature on each page. Why did they not do that to start with?
