When Did Lasting Power of Attorney Change?

The last major legislative update to Powers of Attorney occurred in 2007. This is when Lasting Powers of Attorney were introduced into UK law, directly replacing  Enduring Powers of Attorney (EPA).

If you created or registered an Enduring Power of Attorney before October 2007, then your EPA should be valid. However, new EPAs cannot be created today.
