  • EP 1 - Notice of intention to register an EPA (Northern Ireland)

    Before the registration of an EPA can proceed, notice must be served on the donor, at least three relatives of the donor and any attorney who is not applying. This document creates the required notice (EP1) before an EPA can be registered. This document should only be used for EPAs created in Northern Ireland and only if one or two attorneys are registering the EPA. It can only be used to notify up to 11 relatives.

  • EP2 - Registration of an EPA (Northern Ireland)
    Attorneys of an enduring power of attorney (EPA) which was created in Northern Ireland should use this document in order to register the EPA. This registration should take place as soon as the attorneys believe that the donor is becoming mentally incapable. Before this registration can take place, you must give notice of your intention to register the document and can do so by using the document 'EP1 - Notice of intention to register an EPA (Northern Ireland)'. This document can only be used to register an EPA that was created in Northern Ireland and is only suitable if one or two attorneys were named in the EPA and there are eleven or fewer relatives to notify. You should be sure to include the correct fee and the original EPA with your application.
