Court of Protection to become a Deputy

Court of Protection applications - The mentally ill and infirm

Sometimes a person is unable to manage their affairs due to mental incapacity.

When matters are straightforward a friend or family can help by dealing with the Benefits Agency and Social Services.  However, it may be necessary to apply to the Court of Protection to appoint a Deputy, especially when the person needing care (known as the “Patient”), has property that needs managing and decisions need to be taken about their health and welfare. Also, substantial savings in tax can be made if the Patient’s will is amended or one is prepared if they do not have a will.

Why a court of protection application is required?

A Patient cannot make a will, but a Court can approve a will made for the Patient.  A Deputy must act in the best interests of the Patient and adhere to the guidelines laid down in the Mental Capacity Act 2005.

Stennett & Stennett has many years experience in acting as Deputy for Patients, and helping clients in making applications to the Court of Protection.
