My Scottish Power of Attorney

How Does It Work?

The process online

We will ask you all the questions that you need to answer and give you help along the way.

For instance, you will be asked for your full name, date of birth, address and postcode and the same for your Attorney.

You will be asked to select the type of Power of Attorney that you would like. You are given full details of each type. It sounds more complicated than it is. You will find it easy.

You don't need to do this all in one go. You can save the information as you go along. You can even go away and come back and complete the form at a later date.

Once you have given us all the information that we need, you will be presented with a final page which shows you all the information that you have given.

Even at that stage, you will be able to go back and correct typing mistakes or make changes, if you want.

Once you are satisfied, you push the final button and it is only then that you will be asked to pay for your Power of Attorney by credit or debit card.

Once paid, your power of attorney is sent to you by e-mail.

In addition to that document, you will be provided with additional assistance on what to do next including any forms required to register the Power of Attorney with the Scottish Office of the Public Guardian, explanatory guides for your Attorney and for yourself and printed addresses for attaching to envelopes.

Nothing could be easier. 

The process off-line

After you have downloaded your Power of Attorney, the explanatory guide explains what you need to do but, briefly, you need to sign this in front of a Doctor or Solicitor who will then complete the schedule at the end of the document. A Solicitor will charge for this but doctors sometimes charge and sometimes do not charge. You might want to ask your doctor, beforehand.

Thereafter, the procedure divides into 2: –

1. If you have chosen to spring the PoA you will need to register it. I have made that as easy as possible providing you with full guidance along with your Power of Attorney. The government charges £75 to register it. You can register by post or electronically.

2. If you have chosen not to spring it until a certain event occurs, such as your incapacity occurring, then after having seen the doctor or lawyer, as described above, you put the document aside and it will wait for that event to occur.

For the avoidance of doubt, the £350 that I have quoted as an average legal charge does not include the £75 registration fee. Even with a doctor or lawyer charge, you are still saving £00’s and, not only that, have these extra benefits: –

Easy to use.

Convenient - you can do it at home or at the office.

Security - no money is requested until you are quite satisfied. Your wishes are set out and confirmed to you before you commit yourself.

The price is fixed with no unexpected costs.

Free information - this website is packed full of information.

So why wait?
