Resolved Question:

My brother is registering an enduring power of attorney which I have never seen, always thought my parents would have wanted us to work together to look after the finances and property, is it possible I could be on the EPA as an additional attorney and he's not telling me, would he still be able to register it ?

Hi
I am sorry it must be difficult
I am afraid that if you were also named then your brother could not register the Power without your involvement or agreement.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
