Court Of Protection
A person may lose capacity to manage their affairs and have not made an LPA. In these cases, the person’s finances are frozen and an application must be made to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship Order. This Court Order provides legal authority to a named person or persons to manage the affairs of the person who has lost capacity under the auspices of the Court of Protection.
We have wide experience in these matters and will be pleased to help in connection with the application to the Court and any related matters which may arise.
The costs are fixed by the Court and are £950 + vat. There are also other expenses including the court fee, insurance premium and the doctor’s fee for issuing the medical report.
