Re EL

Power of attorney – Revocation. The proceedings concerned a lasting power of attorney (LPA) for property and financial affairs, in which EL had appointed her two children as her attorneys. On the application of the Public Guardian, the Court of Protection made an order revoking the LPA and inviting a panel deputy to apply to be appointed as EL's deputy for property and affairs, in circumstances where it had found, inter alia, that the LPA was not functioning satisfactorily because of the corrosive effect of the animosity between the attorneys, that the attorneys had behaved in a way that was not in EL's best interests and that EL lacked the capacity to revoke the LPA.
