Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I will be looking to do this asap.
As I say one of my main concerns is if an application to register POA is now in place, and at the time mum made it (probably earlier this week) she was accepted as having "mental capacity" by for example a solicitor, is even if her GP now says she does not have "mental capacity", the POA can be used once it is officially registered and stamped by the Office of the Public Guardian?
This could well put the attorney(s) in a strong position because mum (if her GP deems she does not have mental capacity) will not be able to cancel POA and her affairs will be completely in the hands of the attorney(s)?
The attorney(s) should act in mum's best interests but this may well be questionable?
