If someone is no longer capable of managing their own financial affairs and they do not have a valid Enduring Power of Attorney or Lasting Power of Attorney (Property and Affairs), it may be necessary for the Court of Protection to appoint a Deputy to manage their affairs. The Deputy will take responsibility for the incapacitated person's finances under the guidance of the Court of Protection and the Office of the Public Guardian.
At QualitySolicitors Belshaws we can advise and assist you on the benefits of a Deputyship Order and in making the application to the Court of Protection.
To help you understand more, we have produced a Guide to Deputyship Orders which you can download or read here.
