How to find out if someone is an attorney?
When we are sent an enduring power of attorney, we will review it and provide the person and their attorney with a certified copy of the agreement. This will confirm that the attorney has the legal authority to make certain decisions on behalf of the person. The certified copy will be able to be requested by anyone who may have dealings with the attorney
We will keep a register of enduring powers of attorney.
Certain people and organisations, like banks, lawyers and doctors, will be able to search this register. Family members and carers may also ask to search the register if they have a good reason to do so. We will be able to confirm that an agreement is in place. We will also be able to give them a certified copy of the agreement.
