Deputyship and Court of Protection

Although we are aware that diseases such as dementia or a traumatic brain injury can rob us of our mental capacity, we all hope that such an event will never happen to us or someone we love. Unfortunately, as we are all living longer, the risk of someone being unable to manage their affairs at some stage of their life is relatively high.

Therefore, if a person you love loses mental capacity, and they have not prepared a Lasting Power of Attorney then, our Court of Protection Solicitors can assist you in making an application for Deputyship.

Below are some of the most common questions we are asked about Lasting Powers of Attorneys.
