OPG seeks urgent views of those who prepare LPAs

The Ministry of Justice and the Office of the Public Guardian ("OPG") are seeking input from practitioners involved in making lasting powers of attorney ("LPAs") as part of the early stages of an exercise to modernise the process. Feedback can be provided anonymously and the survey takes around 20 minutes. You can access the survey here:

Input is being sought urgently and the survey will close at 4pm on Friday 25 September 2020.

We're in the very early stages of modernising the way that people make a Lasting Power of Attorney, and need your input. Your responses will help us to understand how solicitors interact with the various stages and people involved in the creation of a Lasting Power of Attorney. We'd like to gain a greater understanding of how we can improve the process, and how this might impact you and your clients. Your responses will remain anonymous unless you opt to take part in future research and provide your contact details.  Completing the survey should take around 20 minutes. You are able to edit your responses until the survey closes at 4pm on Friday 25th September 2020.
