Cancelling A Lasting Power Of Attorney

You as the Donor have the right to cancel your Power of Attorney at any time so long as you still have sufficient mental capacity to do so.

To revoke a Power of Attorney you must complete and sign a formal document called a ‘Deed of Revocation’.  You need to advise your Attorneys and complete a Deed of Revocation form.  Once you have completed and signed/witnessed the form you then send copies to your Attorneys.

If you cancel your Enduring Power of Attorney then you may wish to consider making a Lasting Power of Attorney.

Automatic Ending Of A Lasting Power Of Attorney

An Lasting Power of Attorney will end automatically if any of the following circumstances apply (assuming there are no other or replacement Attorneys) available:

1. You or the Attorney die

2. You or the Attorney become bankrupt (only applies to a Property and Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney)

3. A marriage between you and the Attorney is dissolved or annulled.

4.Your Attorneys lack the mental capacity to make decisions

5. The Lasting Power of Attorney is disclaimed or rejected by the Attorney.

If the Donor dies, their Power of Attorney automatically comes to an end. If an Enduring Power of Attorney or a Lasting Power of Attorney has been made and registered then the Attorney should send the original Enduring Power of Attorney or Lasting Power of Attorney and the death certificate to the Office for the Public Guardian as soon as possible.
