Court of Protection

When someone loses the ability to manage their financial affairs, perhaps through injury or age-related illness, and has no Property and Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney in place, an application to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship order will be required before anything can be done in relation to those finances.

We always encourage our clients to have a properly drafted Lasting Power of Attorney in place but sometimes illness or injury strikes before this can be done. Please follow the link if you would like more information on Statutory Wills, Statutory Gifts and Deputyships.

A Deputyship order gives the applicant power to handle the person’s financial affairs, and may give permission to make specific decisions on that person’s behalf. 

Applicants tend to be close family members but can also be close friends, or sometimes the Local Authority or a professional Deputy (normally a specialist solicitor or accountant).
