Deputyships

 

Helping Someone Who’s Already Lost Their Mental Capacity

 

In the event that a close friend or family member is losing (or has already lost) their mental capacity to deal with their finances, and they do not have a valid Lasting or Enduring Power of Attorney already in place, it may be necessary for an application to be made to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship Order appointing someone (a ‘deputy’) to manage their financial affairs. We can prepare the Deputyship application for you and provide helpful advice to Deputies about all aspects of their role.

At Veta Law, we are here to give practical guidance to Deputies and advise on your responsibilities in undertaking this role. We can also act as a professional Deputy for you, and deal with someone’s affairs on their behalf. We can fulfil the administrative and accounting obligations required of a Deputy by the Court of Protection. Essentially, we are here to provide a professional and approachable source of support.

Get Your Free Legal Health Check

If you already have wills, trusts and/or powers of attorney in place and you want a solicitor to simply check that they still fit the bill, then please get in touch. We can quickly review your documents to see if they are still right for you. For example, you may have completed them some time ago and would like a jargon-free reminder of what it all means. We would be happy to do this for you.

Alternatively, your circumstances may have changed (e.g. you’ve got married, become ill, had more grandchildren, got divorced or suffered a bereavement) since you completed your will, trust and/or power of attorney and you would like a solicitor to verify if your documents are still right for you. If this applies to you, please do get in touch.

We understand that sometimes all clients need is reassurance and clarity about the documents they already have in place.
