For your convenience, our most common customer questions are answered here.
Q: How much does Get Power of Attorney charge to prepare each Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)?
A: £150 (no VAT payable)
Q: Are any discounts available if more than one LPA that is prepared at the same time?
A: Yes, a £20 reduction is applied to each set of Lasting Powers if they are prepared together. This is an introductory offer and is subject to change.
Q: Are there any other incentives?
A: Yes, if you recommend someone to have their LPA prepared by us, you will receive gift vouchers worth £10 for each completed LPA. This is an introductory offer and is subject to change.
Q: I am in a hurry, how long will it all take?
A: Urgent appointments are available. Once instructions are taken and the charges and registration fees are paid, the LPA can be registered as soon as all the signatures are gathered. This depends on who the attorneys are and if they live in close proximity to the Donor. If everything is gathered together urgently, the application can be sent for registration within a week, depending on the time it takes to get everyones signature. The Court of Protection will usually register the LPA within 8-10 weeks. They must allow a three week period for the notification process. If no notification is required they can register the LPA in 6-8 weeks.
Q: My parents are elderly and my dad is immobile. They are not very good with the telephone. How will you gather the information you need?
A: Home visits are standard. The visit will be arranged at your convenience, including at weekends and in the evenings. The first visit will usually take 30-40 minutes, and the second visit (for the document to be signed and other witnesses signatures arranged) takes 15-20 minutes. We feel that this personal service is the best way to obtain the information, especially from elderly, infirm, confused or disabled people. We can, however, take all of the instruction by telephone if this is more convenient.
Q: When is payment made, and by what method?
A: Payment can be made by direct bank transfer, cheque or PayPal or, if preferred, in cash. Payment can be made at the time of taking instructions or when the forms are prepared for signature.
