I have a client who wishes to appoint her son as one of her attorneys but
only when he reaches a specified age. The son is currently at university so
the mother doesn’t wish to burden him with any responsibility until he has
established his career. I have spoken to the OPG who inform me that it’s
not possible for a third attorney to step in at a later date. This is
because all attorneys must work together. Does anyone have any experience
of this and how I might be able to appoint the son to step in at the
specified age? OPG suggests that the mother executes a further LPA when the
son reaches the specified age which could run along side the original LPAS?
Any guidance much appreciated.
