I've had Lasting Power of Attorney for my mum registered with the Office for Public Guardian since last summer. Since then, I've been slowly trying to register it with the banks that mum uses so that I can help her with her finances. Unfortunately, the bureaucracy related to getting it registered is driving me mad! Multiple trips to the branch, being required to produce the same documents on multiple occasions and then it being registered incorrectly at the end of it all. Has anyone else found this? I'm starting to think it's something I'm doing wrong!! I have already made a formal complaint to one bank and will be doing so with another. That said, it's hard to find the energy to make formal complaints on top of all the caring responsibilities and coping with bureaucracy.
