You need to appoint at least one Attorney, but you may choose to appoint more than one.
An Attorney can be a family member, a trusted friend or a professional advisor, provided they:
You Attorney's appointment will be ended if:
If you wish to have more than one attorney
If you wish to have more than two attorneys
You may choose to appoint someone as a substitute Attorney, who will stand in if an Attorney is no longer able to act on your behalf. If there is no substitute Attorney and your Attorney(s) are no longer able to act, the LPA will no longer be valid.
If you have named more than one Attorney, please tick the correct box to tell us how you want them to be able to act.
Joint Only - must make all decisions and sign all documents together
Joint and Severally - may make decisions together but may also make decisions and sign documents individually
Jointly for some decisions and Jointly and Severally for other decisions - you can specify below which decisions require Attorneys to act jointly and which decisions can be made individually
You can choose one or more people to be notified when your LPA is registered, who can raise concerns on your behalf. If you do not choose anyone to be notified, then two certificate providers will be required instead of just one.
The person(s) you choose to notify can be a member of your own family or a close friend, but not an Attorney or someone who lives with an Attorney.
The person(s) simply need to agree that when your LPA is registered they are happy for notice to be sent to them. They are under no obligation to do anything with the notice unless they wish to object to the LPA being registered.
A certificate provider signs to say that you, the donor, understands what the LPA is, the authority you are giving your Attorneys and are not being pressurised into making the LPA.
For this reason it is important you choose your Certificate Provider(s) carefully to meet the criteria:
If you have chosen a person(s) to be notified, you need only choose one Certificate Provider, if not you must choose two.
