Fee Update From 25th April 2018 the fee for the submission of a Power of Attorney will be £77, further information is available on the Office of public Guardian website
Terms & Conditions Update The EPOAR Terms & Conditions have been revised and we will be in touch with all EPOAR principal contacts shortly by email to provide further information. A copy of the revised Terms and Conditions can be viewed here.
Attorney Declaration Update We provide an (optional) attorney declaration form that can be used to record that a named attorney is willing to act in terms of the PoA. This form has now been updated to include information for attorneys on what their duties and responsibilities are, therefore although the form is not mandatory, we do strongly encourage its use. A copy of the revised attorney declaration form can be viewed here.
Update There is a known issue with some EPOAR certificates not downloading for cases that were registered since 18 August 2018. If you receive an error message saying an Unexpected error has occurred please email the EPOAR mailbox firstname.lastname@example.org with the POA submission number and we will rectify this for you.
The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) welcomes you to the Electronic Power of Attorney Registration (EPOAR) website. EPOAR is an electronic facility for the submission and payment of Powers of Attorney (POA) made under the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000. EPOAR is not a facility for you to draft your PoA. We will check the validity of POA deeds submitted via EPOAR but will not check data input by users.
