Deputyships and Court of Protection

The Court of Protection exists to protect the property and financial affairs of people who lack mental capacity and to make decisions relating to their welfare.

Should someone become mentally incapable of handling their own affairs, they will usually be incapable of delegating those responsibilities by way of Lasting Power of Attorney. We can offer advice and assistance with the legal steps you need to take – we can help complete the forms to make an application to be appointed Deputy and we can offer guidance on the role of a Deputy.
