    Hi, thanks for reading. I am trying to find out if anyone knows whether if the OPG find that an LPA has been fraudulently aquired (the solicitor was not told my relative even had an Alzheimer's diagnosis 18 prior to the LPA being drawn up) can they decide to leave it in place. I am hoping that they must cancel an LPA if it is fraudulently aquired but I am hoping someone will know the answer. Look forward to any and all feedback and thanks again.

    A diagnosis of alzheimers does not necessarily mean the person did not have sufficient mental capacity to understand at the time of signing and a solicitor would have asked questions of the donor to satisfy themselves on that point. You would need to somehow prove the donor did not have mental capacity and that can fluctuate. They only needed to understand at the point of signing.
