Court of Protection

When people are unable to make their own decisions because of a mental illness, other people may be required to make decisions on their behalf. Sometimes there may be disagreements surrounding these decisions and that is where the Court of Protection can help.

The Court of Protection protects the rights of people who are unable to make their own decisions relating to the management of their property, affairs, or welfare. Brennans solicitors have a wealth of experience in dealing with the Court of Protection and are here to provide advice, support and guidance in this area for the people of Tyneside.

You may be concerned about decisions that someone else is making on behalf of a loved one, or perhaps you are worried that a relative is no longer able to manage their own affairs. If this is the case, you can ask the Court of Protection to appoint a deputy, who ensures that decisions are made in the individual’s best interests and as they would have wanted themselves.

Our Court of Protection solicitors are committed to protecting the interests of vulnerable people and their families. You can talk to us in complete confidence and our free initial assessment promise means you can get answers to your immediate questions, quickly and easily. If you would like to find out how we can help you to use the Court of Protection to protect yourself or a loved one, please call us on 01912 836 413 or visit us in branch today.

      A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a term many people are familiar with but aren’t exactly sure what it means. An LPA enables a person (called the Donor) to empower another person (called the Attorney) to make decisions on their behalf.

      In my day to day work , as a solicitor assisting people in planning for their futures I come across lots of families who are dealing , often , but not exclusively with elderly relatives who have lost mental capacity . It comes as an unwelcome surprise to them that even though they may be very closely related, that they have no legal authority to manage their relatives finances and that they will need to apply to the courts, which will take a minimum of 6 months and involves costs in excess of £1250, and that more importantly in the meanwhile their relatives finances are frozen. Sadly this is a position that thousands of families find themselves in every year, and many regret not setting up a lasting power of attorney.

      In 2013 the current Government announced planned changes to be introduced as early as 2016 to “help the elderly keep their homes”.
