Mrs M called this week concerned about Powers of Attorney we put in place for her and her husband last year. The reason for her concern was that it wasn’t a “Lasting Power of Attorney.” We were able to put her mind at rest quickly. A Lasting Power of Attorney is an English document, she had a “Continuing and Welfare Power of Attorney” set up by us which is the Scottish version. Turns out she had been reading an English based magazine which had offered the advice. Something to watch out for if you are looking for advice – always contact a Scottish source, some media will be English and internet is often American.
