Hi, Barclays will not allow me POA status on my mums account due to a Iva I have, can they refuse this as I have poa status? They say I have a mark on my name?
Many thanks

As far as I am aware an IVA does not affect a POA application and Barclays have no power to refuse to co-operate. The account is not in your name, nor are the funds yours, but you are merely administering them on behalf of the account holder ---- if the Office of the Public Guardian is happy for you to act, then that is all that is required.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

Both myself and husband did a POA for both parents whilst we had IVA's with no problems.

Hmmm..your mum's financial affairs should not be posing an issue as they are not linked to your iva, however your bank appear to have a policy of their own. (My opinion). I act as my grandmothers POA in my IVA without any issue so I think it is down to bank policies.

Maybe go in and speak to the branch manager direct, explain and plead to his better nature ..sometimes things can be overturned locally if fully understood

I would like to take some professional advice as to how you can deal with this
