My husband and I have each registered POA (for each other). I cannot now find the original copies. Do I need to do it again, or can I use the copies I have on the computer when/if I need to invoke it. My husband is showing early signs of demantia
Hi @mandywr, welcome to the forum. In my experience most (financial institutions) require sight of the originals or a certified copy (if it was done via a Solicitor), If you used a Solicitor they will be able to provide certified copies. I would start registering sooner rather than later - I left it quite late with my Mum and it caused me a few difficulties with the bank etc. All the best.
They will probably be validated copies with 'validated' pierced across the bottom. I had these when you could order 2 FOC and use instead of getting certified copies. It took a lot of convincing people they were valid.
