If someone you care about loses the mental ability to deal with their own finances, and they do not have an Enduring Power of Attorney or a Lasting Power of Attorney in place, it will be necessary for someone to apply to the Court of Protection for authority to manage their financial affairs. The application is called a Deputyship Application and the person who is authorised by the court to manage the person’s affairs is called a Deputy.
We can advise and assist you as to:
- What information the Court will require.
- The documents you will need to complete when making an application.
- Your responsibilities if the court appoint you as a Deputy.
