Hello – I am slightly concerned about answering this question as it is possibly subject to Scots Law. I understand that in Scotland it is called a Continuing Power of Attorney.
However in England and Wales it is not necessary to use a solicitor to create an Enduring Power of Attorney – which is now called a Lasting Power of Attorney. There are rules around mental capacity and you will need to follow the procedure.
