    Compensating attorneys (as in power of attorney)

    Compensating attorneys (as in power of attorney) 23rd Oct 16 at 3:44 PM
    I am making a lasting power of attorney, appointing each and every one of my sons and daughters as attorneys. In case the LPA is ever used, I want to ensure that each one of them is suitably compensated for performing this duty. I want to enter this wish of mine in the section of must do for attorneys. Is this arrangement permissible. Any one of my attorneys would have to take time off from work, travel from overseas, etc) and I want to make sure they do not lose out in any way . I sure don't want any one to start an investigation, start meddling in and waste their time. Time is what none of them have. Of course none of this may happen and I could pass away in my sleep!

    Surely paying until there's at least one year's funds left means that the payment can never be made? Do you mean until there's no more than one year's funds left?
    Unless I say otherwise 'you' means the general you not you specifically.

    Good point. Must take care to use the right words. Not easy when Scotch is to hand.

    Got information from the horses mouth, the OPG, over the phone, so no written record. According to the call centre staff I spoke to, if you specify that the attorney must be fully compensated for performing specific tasks at a specified rate, then the attorney would be able to legitimately claim the compensation. That is what I have done.
