Lifetime mortgage papers. He has property but no cash and requires a release in order to pay for home help.
No, he is very independent and not very trusting which is his right of course and wants to retain his independence to make all decisions. It seems silly to have to consider a P of A just in this one instance. I take it from your question you think this would be the only way? Even if he got a solicitor to do a P of A he could not sign this either so if she wont agree for a X on this document how could she agree a P of A?
Sorry for delay in coming back. He chose the solicitor who was approved by the Equity Release Company.
