I posted a while back about taking my Mother to her solicitor to complete the POA forms and that I wasn’t sure if she had done this. Her bank recommended we get this so that I can continue to handle Mums investments for her. Well she has, I caught a glimpse of them yesterday after Mum mentioned a letter she had received from the solicitor to “please come in to sign them.” She had studiously ignored or forgotten about the 3 previous letters! Mum won’t let me actually read the documents so I’m going to have to sneak a peek if I can get my son to take her down the garden. I am worried that Mum may have put her brothers as attorneys but being as they are 87 and 80 (Mum is 73) and both live a long way away and have dementia this would obviously not be suitable. If she has put her brothers then I will download a new set of papers from the internet and swap them. I have persuaded Mum to see her solicitor next Thursday and hopefully she will sign the POA and it would be best if these were now registered as she does nothing either financially or health wise for herself. I do it all being her only immediate family. Oh and BTW I asked on the phone if I can keep a copy of this POA (unregistered) to show the bank and was told I couldnt. Is this right? After that explanation the real reasons I posted is; 1 To know who pays for it to be registered? 2 What is expected of me as an attorney?
