How to register your lasting power of attorney
Registering your LPA
An LPA can be registered – by the donor or their
attorney(s) – at any time after it has been made. But
it cannot be used until it has been registered by the
OPG. (Where a replacement attorney has replaced the
attorney in an unregistered lasting power of attorney,
they can also register it.)
LPA 001
07.11
LPA002
Notice of intention to apply for registration
of a Lasting Power of Attorney
09.11
Office of the Public Guardian
This notice must be sent to everyone named by the donor in the Lasting Power of Attorney as a person who
should be notified of an application to register. Relatives are not entitled to notice unless named in the Lasting
Power of Attorney.
Part 1 - The donor
Place a cross (x) against one option
The application to register may be made by the donor or the attorney(s).
Mr.
Mrs.
Ms.
Where attorneys are appointed to act together they all must apply to register.
Registering the LPA soon after it is made means that it
will be ready to be used by your attorney(s) when needed.
The longer the LPA is kept after making it and before
registering it, the more likely you or your attorney(s) will
need to keep its contents up to date (addresses, contact
details, etc.). During this period, your made LPA cannot
be amended. If your circumstances change, or your LPA
is no longer relevant for some reason, you must complete
a fresh LPA form.
To register the LPA the person who is making the
application:
• First: informs each of the people to be told (if there are
any) of their intention to register the LPA (by filling-in
and sending to each one a copy of form LPA001 – 5
copies are included in your LPA creation pack).
This informs them that the LPA is being registered and
that they have 5 weeks to raise any concerns.
• Then: fills in form LPA002 ‘Application to register
a Lasting Power of Attorney’ – also included in your
LPA creation pack with separate 4-page guidance
notes – and sends this with your completed LPA form
to the OPG.
Return your completed form to:

Notice of intention to apply for registration
of a Lasting Power of Attorney
You can ask the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) to stop the LPA from being registered if one of the factual
grounds at (A) below has occurred. You need to tell us by completing Form LPA007 which is available from the
OPG and by providing evidence to accompany it. You must send us the completed LPA007 form within five
weeks from the date this notice was given. Failure to tell us could result in the LPA being registered.
This notice must be sent to everyone named by the donor in the Lasting Power of Attorney as a person who
should be notified of an application to register. Relatives are not entitled to notice unless named in the Lasting
Power of Attorney.
(A) Factual grounds – you can ask the Office of the Public Guardian to stop registration if:
• The Donor is bankrupt or interim bankrupt (for property and affairs LPAs only)
The application to register may be made by the donor or the attorney(s).
• The Attorney is bankrupt or interim bankrupt (for property and affairs LPAs only)
Where attorneys are appointed to act together they all must apply to register.
• The Attorney is a trust corporation and is wound up or dissolved (for property and affairs LPAs only)
• The Donor is dead

people to be told should make any objections (the other
two pages of the form are shown on the next page).
If it is not possible to establish contact with any of the
people to be told, you must keep proof of posting slips,
or returned-to-sender evidence, to demonstrate that you
have made reasonable efforts.
To the person to be told - You have the right to object to the proposed registration of the Lasting
Power of Attorney. You have five weeks from the day on which this notice is given to object.
Details of how to object and the grounds for doing so are on the back page.
Details of the Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)
Note: If you are objecting to the appointment of a specific attorney, it will not prevent registration if other
attorneys or a substitute attorney have been appointed.

grounds mentioned at (B) below. To do this you must contact the Court and complete the application to object
form they will send you. Using that form, you must set out your reasons for objecting. They must receive the
objection within five weeks from the date this notice was given. You must also notify the OPG when you object
to the Court by using the separate form LPA008 that the Court will send you. Failure to notify the OPG of an
objection may result in registration of the LPA.

donor’s best interests.

If the correct title does not appear, please
provide the one now used in the boxes
provided to the right.
To avoid rejection of your LPA when
applying to register …
• Please Note: The donor’s surname should be
inserted in the line where it says, ‘last name’.
Remember to send:
• Your made LPA form.
• Your completed Application form (LPA002).
• Your payment or signed application for a fee remission
or exemption.
• Please Note: The next two lines are for
forename/s. Please ensure that only the
donor’s first name is inserted where it says,
‘Forename 1’.
• Where the donor is living in a hospital or care
home, the name of this should be entered
where it says ‘Address 1’.

able to find it in the LPA, in Part A under the
Donor’s name and address. If the date of birth

please explain, if you are able, the difference
in Part 12 of the form and provide a copy of the

The detail:
If the attorney is making the application, the OPG will
formally notify the donor. If the donor is making the
application the OPG will notify the attorney(s). If one of the
joint and several attorneys makes the application, the OPG
will inform the donor and the other attorney(s).It is therefore
a good idea to discuss the application to register the LPA
with the donor or attorney beforehand.
For information about how much it costs to register the
LPA, see OPG fees guidance.
If the original LPA form is missing, it may be possible to
accept a copy certified by the donor or by the solicitor who
originally prepared it. In general, only the original LPA is
acceptable.
You are advised to register your LPA as soon as you have
completed the LPA form.

If you need to act on a donor’s behalf before the LPA is
