Judgment concerning whether a donor under a Lasting Power of Attorney for Property and Financial Affairs (LPA) executed in 2009 had capacity to execute it.
Application for costs where the Public Guardian had sought orders to replace the applicant as attorney and the original suspension of the LPA had been overturned. An order for 50% of costs was made.
Several applications were brought by the PG where the common theme across these applications was the expression by the donor, in the Lasting Power of Attorney, of an intention that the appointed attorney use the donor's funds to benefit someone other than the donor.
Application by the P's son to receive authority from the court to make gifts from the P's estate in the sum of £7m. The authorisation was granted.
This case involves 17 electronic applications made by the Public Guardian for Lasting Powers of Attorney to be severed.
