Certified copy Power of Attorney
We make a £10 charge for providing a solicitor-certified copy of a single page document, this does not apply to certified copy LPA’s, which we have found an exception to our general approach because:
1. The documents are generally very long, and every page needs separately certifying by a solicitor
2. Those wanting the certified copy LPA’s often require particular wording, that may mean we are unable to use our standard stamps, which entails more work in handwriting
3. Those wanting the certified copy LPA’s often require multiple copies
All these requirements take a relatively long time, and therefore we have decided to make an exceptional charge for this type of copy, as outlined.
Please note, due to the above, these will usually take at least two days to be completed and ready for collection - please ask our receptionists for time scales. They will also be able to advise you of which branch has a solicitor who may be able to complete a copy quicker if it is an emergency.
How long will it take?
We don’t generally do anything for new clients until our process of client retention has concluded – this involves agreeing the scope of what we are doing for the price (our terms are below), setting-up our client record, and producing the bill (payment in advance is required for all new clients).
After that, the production of the copy is a job that we can undertake in less than an hour once we can schedule it in our workflow, that can depend on how busy we are at any particular time. We normally give production of certified copy LPA’s priority, and produce them within a day or two of being able to.
