Hi, my elderly father is in England & I have just taken over managing his finances as his Lasting power of attorney. I'm struggling with a few things and wonder if anyone else is in a similar situation that could offer some advice please? I'm having difficulty with: accessing some online accounts from Australia as his power of attorney - they won't let me put in an overseas address - e.g. British Gas Paying for things such as his shopping online with his card due to overseas address arranging for him to have access to a small & limited amount of regular spending money - he loses his cards or doesn't use them safely. Grateful for any suggestions. thanks
MikenSal posted a topic in Aussie ChatSorry if I've posted this in the wrong place.. but it is a bit of a dilemma.. Hopefully someone on here can point us in the right direction. we came out here in 2008 and settled in Yanchep, About 1hr north of Perth. When we came over we were unable to sell the house as the market in the UK had crashed. We had to rent it out and hope that things improved. 5 years later and our neighbour in the UK wants to buy it and knock through! Cool. So we got a buyer.. now for the problem. My father is wiling to do all the leg work with regards the selling of the house as we are doing it privately. However we need to grant him power of attorney. Can we do this from over here? And if so, how? I've looked online and cant seem to find much out. Any guidance on this would be muchly appreciated.
