New lasting power of attorney (LPA) forms will be introduced for both property and financial affairs LPAs and health and welfare LPAs.
The new forms follow a recent consultation and feedback from users who were directly involved in their development. The redesign aims to make the forms easier to follow and faster to complete.
Both old and new versions of the of LPA forms can be submitted for the next 6 months (ie until 1 Jaunary 2016) If the old LPA forms have been completed, signed and dated correctly by Friday, 1 January 2016, they can still be registered at any time providing they have been made correctly.
You can read more on the Gov.uk website here. The forms will be available here.
Stay up to date with changes to policy and procedure.
