Anyone considering becoming a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) or appointing an LPA might find this essential reading: https://www.gov.uk/lasting-power-attorney-duties
There’s a lot of ‘musts’ and ‘must nots’ in it. I think they’re legally binding. 

(Sorry: wasn’t sure which topic to post this under). 

would've . . . could've . . . should've . . .

There's definitely no 'a' in 'definitely'.

    May I add something that even s9ne solicitors and will writers are not aware of or have forgotten.
    If you are in receipt of council tax discount (not the 25% single person tax) 
    You are exempt from paying the registration fee, currently around £85.
    My husband and I had 2  each so we in fact saved 4 x £85.00
    Just a heads up 
    make the most of it, we are only here for the weekend.
    and we will never, ever return.
Meet your Ambassadors
