Who can be my certificate provider?
Your Certificate Provider can be one of two types of people: either a professional, or someone who has known you for at least two years.
Normally, when MG Legal's team are drafting your Lasting Power of Attorney on your behalf, we would be able to act as Certificate Provider.
If you’re not using our professional services, you may be able to ask another professional, such as your GP, or you could ask a neighbour, colleague or friend who has known you for at least two years. You cannot ask a family member or a relative’s partner. In addition, you cannot ask your own partner, if you are unmarried.
