Hi,
Thank you for your question and welcome.
My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.
Had the donor at any point revoked the EPA or does it have an expiry date?

No to either.

Hi,
Thank you.
As long as the EPA was properly executed in the first place, a change of address is not going to invalidate the execution of the document.
Do you have any specific facts you can give me?
Is the Attorney trying to register the power?
Kind regards

my husband will be requiring me to act as attorney shortly but he is at present still mentally capable but is in hospital after a hip fracture and is recovering. He is 92 years old. I have filled out a lasting power of attorney but not witnessed yet but I was told the enduring one which has been witnessed will still be alright.

Hi,
Thank you.
As long as it was properly excuted and has not been revoked, then it will still be sufficient.
You can still register EPA's you just cannot issue new ones (as of 2007).
