Monkeyspanner - thanks for the further references - I will also follow them up
Malid - you are of course correct about the LPA. We have only just received this at great cost of time and funds. The Office of Public Guardianship is swamped by the weight of these new applications and solicitors are only just getting their heads around the applicaion itself. We were unlucky in that it was our solicitor's first and the form was not checked properly and some minor error [a box not being ticked] was not spotted and the appliction was sent off by the solicitor and a lot of time was wasted. Our second appliction was in April and the permissions granted mid August. I rang the office several times and was eventually told that my application would be looked at by the person in charge to see if it could be presssed forward and my details were taken but no-one phoned me back and no speeding up was evident. good luck with this one.
