EPOAR - New jurisdiction section from 2 June 2020

May 21, 2020

Earlier this year we added a new check to our registration process to ensure that we have due jurisdiction to deal with a power of attorney (PoA) submitted for registration.

Please note that from 2 June 2020 the EPOAR facility will be updated to include four statements below:

  • The granter lives in Scotland
  • The granter has property in Scotland (e.g. a house, bank account etc.)
  • The granter does not normally live in Scotland and it is a matter of urgency to submit the PoA for registration in Scotland
  • The granter is present in Scotland and the PoA is needed on a temporary basis to make decisions limited to and within Scotland

Therefore the statement relating to the granter will require to be identified to allow an EPOAR application to progress. This now brings EPOAR in line with the same requirements for postal submissions.
