If a person is no longer capable of dealing with their own financial affairs or personal welfare and they have not made either a Lasting Power of Attorney or and Enduring Power of Attorney then an application can be made to the Court of Protection for a Deputy to be appointed.
If the Court is satisfied that a Deputy is required to either manage a person’s property and financial affairs or welfare matters then an Order will be made.
A Deputy is legally responsible for acting and making decisions on behalf of the person who is unable to make those decisions themselves. The Court Order will set out the Deputy’s powers and the Deputy must act in the best interests of the person to whom the application relates.
