Hi, thanks for your enquiry.
I take it that your parents are in good health or at least have OK health?
Do you and your sister live locally to your parents? Al
Hi Deborah, thanks for your reply.
Well, first and foremost, the decision is your Father's to make as no Solicitor will accept instructions from your sister when preparing a Lasting Power of Attorney for either of your parents. The Solicitor will also normally recommend that the children be Attorneys, as opposed to daughter and son in law!
So, it is entirely up to your Father, and he can appoint you and your sister jointly and severally, meaning that she can act without you if required, and you can act without her, if required.
I hope this assists and sets out the legal position.
If so, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer.
Kind Regards Al
Many thanks. If I have helped, please would you rate my answer. Thanks and Good Luck, Al
