Wills, probate, letters of administration, powers of attorney
Many thanks Eddy.I have prepared an EPA for our son, and now only need to have it witnessed and signed off by the appropriate authority which in our case will be a local JP.
I would appreciate your advice on the wording of "When do you want the power of your attorney for financial matters to begin" which I thought was simple (on my death).
So I stated" On the death of my husband", but then suddenly thought "what if I wasn`t dead, but incapable of physically acting as my wife's EPA. So I have changed it to the following
"Should my husband become physically incapable or become deceased"
knowing my reasons for appointing our son my wifes EPA, will this wording suffice.Your comments would be appreciated.
