    Has anyone registered a Power of Attorney with Lloyd’s Bank? I’ve looked on their website and the way I read it, they will expect MIL to go along with DH and my SIL, who are the attorneys. MIL no longer has capacity, cannot answer even a yes/no question, has only been out of the house in the last four years by ambulance or hospital transport and would refuse to go anyway.

    Does anyone have any suggestions how we should approach this?

    A few years ago I had no problem registering an LPA with Lloyds without my wife (donor) being present, things may have changed.

    Are you sure that the link you gave applies to LPAs, it could be for general powers of attorney.
    It says:

    which makes me think it does not relate to LPAs

    Are these terms any better?

    How to register
    A quick and easy way to get started is for the representative of the customer to book an appointment in branch by calling us on 0345 300 0071. Lines are open 8am - 8pm, seven days a week.

    You need to take the following with you:

    2 forms of identification, one showing your name, one showing your address. Please refer to our list of acceptable identification.
    The original legal documentation, or a copy certified by a solicitor, notary or donor/granter.
    Proof of address if the person you are acting for has changed address since the legal document agreed.
    Once we’ve got what we need, we’ll register the documents while you’re in the branch with the support of our specialist team.

    This is exactly what my husband and I did for my aunt, when she'd lost capacity. We phoned Lloyds Bank and made an appointment. On the day we were shown into a room and a very helpful woman copied everything, got us to sign forms and so on. Then she scanned everything, emailed it to their legal dept and then phoned them to confirm they'd received it and there was nothing more they needed. Then we went and told my aunt ...

    That’s. reliant - thanks. We’re still at the stage where everything we do to support MIL creates two or three other tasks.
