I have an Enduring Power of Attorney for my brother. I had no problem and the EPA is not registered and I will not register it as I don't feel the need. If the bank need a copy, please don't send the original. Get the solicitors to make 6 copies and stamp and sign them to say it is a true copy. If you register the power you have to run it like a small business, adding more pressure to what is already a difficult situation. Tread carefully as the Court of Protection, CSCI, NHS, Social Services etc. etc. are not as good as they are made out to be. Has anyone signed the petition http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/Continuing-Care/ Kind Regards, Stephen (Johnson).
