Hi I joined here to ask a few questions about the legality of LPA's and it seems that there are a few trust issues with other members of the family. My mother in law has what I called "old aged forgetfullness". You can hold a conversation with her and she knows who people are and what is going on, but she will ask you something, then minutes later, ask you the same question. I used to work in a care home and count ourselves lucky that she is nowhere near the stage that some people have to deal with. Anyway the question. All her 3 children have LPA, but only one is controlling the finances. The other two do not speak to the one controlling the finances and it has come to light that a comment has been made along the lines of "When the end comes to mum, they will have a shock". The mother in law has cancelled the online banking once and we verbally told the bank that it was not to be reinstated, but it was. The other two do not trust the financial controller and wondered if there is anything they can do. Is it possible to just appoint a solicitor? Any suggestions welcome. I have told my wife that they all need to talk. Easier said than done when they are all as stubborn as mules.
