Power of attorney registration form

If you are registering your power of attorney by post, you must complete this registration form and send it to the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG). It is only suitable for powers of attorney created in Scotland. You can use it to register a continuing power of attorney, welfare power of attorney, or a combined power of attorney. Note that if you have created separate ‘continuing’ and ‘welfare’ powers of attorney (rather than a combined version), you will need to complete this form twice.

You do not need this form if you register your power of attorney online via the OPG's Electronic Power of Attorney Registration service.
