What Should I Do if I've Made a Mistake on my Lasting Power of Attorney Form?

If you have submitted an LPA form that has an error within it, the form may be rejected by the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG). The OPG may let you correct the error and re-apply within 3 months of the initial application. If they allow you to correct the error, you will be charged a fee of £42.

Can a Lasting Power of Attorney be Changed?

Once you have submitted your Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) form to the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG), it can only be changed under certain circumstances. You must inform the OPG if one of the attorneys die, changes their address or name. You can also choose to remove an attorney through filing a partial deed of revocation. 

 

To make any major changes to the LPA, the donor must first revoke their LPA by filing a deed of revocation and re-submit a new LPA with the OPG.
