Court of Protection

The patient, BN executed a lasting power of attorney (LPA) for property and financial affairs, and an LPA for health and welfare, in which she appointed her daughter, SH, and her granddaughter, GN, jointly and severally to be her attorneys. About four months later, BN’s other daughter, CN, applied to the court for an order that the LPAs be revoked and a panel deputy appointed because the attorneys were unsuitable to be the donor’s attorneys. BN and her attorneys, SH and GN, objected to the application. The court of protection found, applying established principles, that BN had not lacked capacity to revoke the LPAs and therefore it had no jurisdiction.
