Hi everyone. My father has Alzheimer's and I'm on a steep leaning curve both legally and health wise. I've been living and working abroad with very little contact with my him, as we hadn't got on for years. Now that we have built bridges, I'm in catch up mode. Due to my past absence the POA is with his solicitor. It can not be transferred to me now (his only child), as the solicitor thinks he is unable to make an informed decision and I unfortunately agree. That said, what information am I allowed to ask of the solicitor. Fees, extent of the POA etc. Also my father says he wants to buy me a car. After a short talk with his solicitor, this can be given as a gift but will cost £400 and 6 months to go through the courts. Is that normal? Any advice on any of these matters, would be gratefully received.
