What domI have to do to change a power of attorney and a rough cost
Assistant: Where is this? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: This is in the Uk
Assistant: What steps have been taken so far?
Customer: None, my daughter had power of attorney for my son. She evicted both of us from her home, and I am his full time career, but she still retains the power of attorney
Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Just a rough cost, as we are both on benefits

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

Effectively, he would need to end his LPA with his sister, and make a new one.

Here is the information about ending this:

https://www.gov.uk/power-of-attorney/end

And the information about making a new one:

https://www.gov.uk/power-of-attorney

It costs £83 to register a new LPA.

But it may be possible to be exempt from the fee - see here:

Is there anything I can clarify for you?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
Is it different if he has got special needs, as I would have to do all the paperwork for him

OK, in that case you would apply to the court of protection.

This is if he lacks capacity.
