Lasting Power of Attorney Disputes

Contact


Essex: 01702 338338 or London: 020 8049 5888

A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) gives someone legal authority to make decisions on someone else’s behalf concerning their health, welfare and financial matters.

A Dispute can often arise when an attorney is abusing their power in dealing with the donor’s finances and when the mental capacity of the Donors is being questioned at the time of executing the LPA.

The initial step to address any concerns is to approach the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) who have power to investigate matters thoroughly. Accordingly, if you feel the matter has a criminal aspect then this can be reported to the police.

In most cases disputes can be settled by way of alternative dispute resolution methods such a mediation, open settlement talks and/or by approaching the Office of the Public Guardian or Court of Protection in some instances.

Our specialist Solicitors can provide legal advice in relation to the best method to resolve such matters without the need for a formal court procedure, if possible.
