i am so cross with the solicitor who my mum used to set up the LPAs last year. She is of an age to think a solicitor is needed for any legal matters and would not consider doing it online with my help. She insisted on using a local firm who messed up an earlier EPA application long before her diagnosis of Altzeimers. ( basically they did not complete the process even though they charged her a huge fee and then tried to blame her for not giving them some final information) It was easier to go along with her wishes and we made the half done EPA null and void to start again. At our meeting, I asked the solicitor to provide the three attorneys with certified copies as part of the ridiculous fee and he agreed. When I collected the copies I only checked that the front page was stamped and assumed every page was the same. Today I needed a certified copy to show to her GP so that we can have info about medical appointments and on looking, found only the front page was signed! I am sure I have read here that every page needs to be signed. The solicitor said I was wrong and on,y the front page needs to be certified and said he would charge £5 a page to certify the rest! He is not even sure if he still has the original, which he stated his firm always kept safe, and told me to ask to see mums copy. I think we need the original to get the copies certified? I am so cross at the extortionate fees mum paid for what I consider to be very poor service, he just could not care less! Luckily I have a couple of solicitor friends who I think will certify the copies for free or at least for a more reasonable fee - provided I can get my hands on the original! It will mean waiting until mum has gone out to look through her paperwork as she has got very secretive recently and I doubt that she will want us to read it now! I am just venting my fury, I am not expecting any advice really!
