    Thank you all for your words of advice.

    This afternoon I took a trip to my local (Bracknell) Job Centre Plus, and a very helpful chap made copies of both LPAs, stamped and signed them, for free.

    He did not ask whether or not my mum had mental capacity, nor did he ask for ID.

    These certified copies will be sent with the Attendance Allowance form.

    Well done on getting it done so quickly.
    Capacity wouldn't matter to Job Centre man, he was just certifying they were true copies. It will be the institutions you send the LPA to which may (or may not) question capacity.

    I managed to find a solicitor who will certify copies for ten pound a copy. I’m going to get three and keep the original safe. X

    Mum (pwd) did certify her own LPA’s as specified on website and the letter that accompanied them so I am concerned to read they may not be valid. ( not tried to use them yet)
    I just wondered what a solicitor does differently as I guess they do not write the wording out at the bottom of each page. Meanwhile I will try and find the other thread
    Thank you
