The Powers of Attorney Act 2023 – and how it will change the law

Royal Assent was granted on 18 September 2023 to the Powers of Attorney Bill – now the Powers of Attorney Act 2023.  When it comes into force (at a date yet to be set), it will  make a number of substantial changes to – in particular – the procedure for making Lasting Powers of Attorney in England & Wales when it comes into force (the precise date for this is not yet known).

For more details of the changes that it will make, and a walkthrough of the Bill (recorded at an earlier stage, but in the same form, as no amendments were made as it went through Parliament), see here.
