Sometimes family members can no longer look after their own financial affairs and property. We will make sure you can obtain help to protect their assets and wellbeing.
When a person is experiencing difficulties making their own decision and does not have a Lasting Power of Attorney or an Enduring Power of Attorney, it may be necessary to make an Application to the Court of Protection.
The Court of Protection is an organisation that makes decisions for people who are unable to do so themselves. They appoint a Deputy to act on behalf of the person who is unable to make their own decisions.
These decisions may involve the person’s property, financial affairs, health and personal welfare.
The Court of Protection can:
Decide whether a person is unable (has no capacity) to make a particular decision for themselves.
Make decisions in respect of financial and welfare matters on behalf of people who are unable to do so themselves.
Appoint a Deputy to act for someone who is unable to make their own decisions and make a Will on behalf of someone who lacks capacity.
We offer a fixed price for this service:
Court of Protection £600.00 inclusive of VAT but excluding, the Court fee (£400.00), a Report from a GP or Old Age Psychiatrist confirming the persons lack of capacity, and any other disbursements necessary.
Our fees for this service are on the basis that the application is not contested.
