First, a few questions…

Registration information


In our specialist review we check your completed document for any errors and inconsistencies before you submit it for registration with the relevant office for your country.

Each document must be registered before it can be used and you’ll need to pay a separate fee of up to £82 per document, which is entirely separate from our service fee. If your document is rejected due to an error, there will be a fee for resubmission.

Why use Which?

 

Convenient

Our online document writing process is easy to follow and you can start and stop at any time – no need to complete it all in one go.

 

Supportive

Our specialists are right here to give you a hand if you get stuck.

 

Specialist review

Our specialists will review your completed document to iron out any errors or inconsistencies before you submit it for registration.

 

Potential savings

Each incorrectly completed document can be rejected after it’s been submitted for registration – sometimes for the smallest of reasons – which can lead to delays and additional fees if it then has to be corrected and resubmitted. Our specialist review can help you avoid these costs and delays.

 


A similar service is available at gov.uk for free but it doesn’t include a specialist review or related support.

Why make a power of attorney

A power of attorney gives people you trust the legal right to make decisions on your behalf should you become unable to. It can cover health & welfare, finances & property or both.

Common questions

I already have a will, do I need a power of attorney?

A will is a separate document to a power of attorney. A will is only effective on your death and has no legal authority prior to that point. A power of attorney is effective whilst you are alive and allows others to act on your behalf during your lifetime.  

Why would I use your service when I could just get power of attorney documents from the Office of the Public Guardian's?

The Office of the Public Guardian offers free forms that you can complete yourself. But our service offers additional support and guidance and enables you to have your document reviewed by one of our specialists. You can also contact our specialists with any questions you may have as you complete your forms.

Does the cost for your service cover any registration fees that may apply?

No. We don’t register the documents for you and the registration fee is not included in the cost of our service. Please check the relevant Office of the Public Guardian to see what fee applies.

Once I pay for the power of attorney forms do I have to complete them by a certain date?

No, there isn't a time limit, you are very much in control of when you complete your power of attorney .So you can start, then pause and come back when you are ready. But, now you have purchased, we suggest you complete them sooner rather than later.

Can I buy a POA for someone else?

Yes, you can purchase a document on behalf of someone else, so long as you have their permission, and you complete the questionnaire at their instruction.
