How long should it take to get power of attorney? looked on google and it says 8-10 weeks?
I posted in a thread the other day about my MIL going into a nursing home.
This just adds to the top up of things he's told me.
So she has Vascular Dementia and was diagnosed around 2/3 years ago however for probably the last year it's been at it's worst. my FIL told me that he had gone for POA back in June last year. Not 100% sure how he got a signiture from her but it was witnessed in a Solicitors I found all this out in January this year.
The other day when there was talk of him wanting to send her into a nursing home he menationed that he still hasn't heard from them since he last spoke to them about 6/7 weeks ago when they told him not to worry it's all still being sorted. However having looked on google other than any complications it should have been sorted in a few months I checked out the Solicitors and they seem legit but he's handed them over £1300 to sort this.
He can be pretty clueless with some things so I haven't gone down the route yet of getting involved but wondering if I should at this point?
