In the event that an individual lacks the mental capacity to deal with their affairs and has not put into place a valid Enduring or Lasting Power of Attorney, we can assist with applying to the Court of Protection for Deputyship.
A Deputy appointed by the Court of Protection must act in the best interests of the person with incapacity and follow the rules of the Mental Capacity Act 2005.
Beaufort Montague Harris can assist with applications to the Court of Protection and guide you through the process. We can advise you on the options available and whether a Court application is suitable for your particular needs. We understand the need for sensitivity and proportionality, and that individual family circumstance can be complex. We aim to provide the support network and guidance necessary.
Please contact us if you would like specialist advice regarding the Court of Protection.
