Re MC

Power of attorney – Revocation. MC executed a lasting power of attorney for property and affairs (the LPA), in which she appointed her daughter (SR) and her son (NC) jointly and severally to be her attorneys. The Public Guardian applied for orders for the revocation and cancellation of the LPA and directing that the local authority be invited to apply for appointment as deputy. The Court of Protection held that, whilst SR had unquestionably behaved in a way that had contravened her authority and was not in MC's best interests, NC had not behaved or proposed to behave in such a way. Accordingly, there were no grounds on which his appointment could be revoked.
