OPG publishes FAQ guide for creating LPAs

The Office of Public Guardian (OPG) has published new blog posts outlining frequently asked questions it encounters when creating an LPA.

Recent news reports and discussion on social media sites, such as LinkedIn, have highlighted long delays and a “deteriorating” service at the OPG in relation to LPA registration.

In the blog, the OPG states, “we receive hundreds of phone calls each week from people looking for help and information on a number of different things”, the OPG hopes that by publishing a two-part series addressing the most common and frequently asked questions that it will go some way to make “life a little easier when creating an LPA”.

The blog posts discuss topics such as whether an EPA needs to be registered, why LPAs can’t be changed or amended, and what to do in cases of changed address.
