If someone does sadly become incapable of managing their own affairs and there is no Lasting Power of Attorney or Enduring Power of Attorney in place then a Deputyship Application to the Court of Protection may be required.

Deputyships are usually granted to a family member, friend or professional and the role of a Deputy may include the following:

  • Liaising with members of a care team;
  • Payment of routine bills;
  • Assessing and reviewing the availability of state benefits;
  • Investing money including financial reviews;
  • Budgeting and general financial management and monitoring of cash flow;
  • Dealing with requests for capital expenditure such as holidays;
  • Dealing with household matters such as contents and buildings insurance, repairs and maintenance etc;
  • Completing an annual tax return and dealing with HM Revenue & Customs;
  • Completing the Office of the Public Guardian annual report;
  • Liaising as required with the Office of the Public Guardian; and
  • Applying for a Statutory Will.

Applying for Deputyship can be a daunting process but our experienced team will guide you through each step.
