Capacity Issues

Lasting Powers of Attorney

It is important to plan for a time where you may not be able to manage your own affairs. Lasting powers of attorney ensure that the right person is appointed to make decisions on your behalf. You can appoint attorneys to make decisions for your financial, business or health matters.

Applications to the Court of Protection

If your loved one has lost capacity and did not put in place a lasting power of attorney, then you need to make an application to the Court of Protection. Your loved one may require a Deputy to make decisions on their behalf.  The Court of Protection can appoint an appropriate Deputy to assist them.

We are able to assist with the following;

  1. Applications to appoint a Deputy
  2. The administration of a person’s affairs on behalf of a Deputy
  3.  Application for a Will for someone without capacity
  4. Applications to appoint or remove a Trustee who has lost capacity
