Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
Yes I am afraid that they are - unless you are holding a Lasting Power of Attorney on behalf of your partner.
Alternatively your partner can write and sign a letter of Authority authorising them to deal with the issue with you
Please ask if you need further details
