Deputyship Order Solicitors in Leeds

Your need when applying for a Deputyship Order...

If you have a friend or relative who are no longer able to make decisions for themselves and are unable to make a Power of Attorney, then Deputyship is the way forward. A Deputyship Order is necessary when somebody cannot make decisions for themselves and a family member needs to gain control of finances, for example to deal with nursing home fees.

How we can help with obtaining a Deputyship Order...

We can guide you through the process of obtaining Deputyship which at the outset can appear to be daunting. The first stage is to obtain a medical report confirming the patient (family member) lacks capacity. We are able to offer assistance in completing the forms and submitting the application to the Court of Protection. In some cases we act as Deputy for people with no close family.

Your need when applying to the Court of Protection...

You may have an elderly or disabled relative who is not capable of making a Will or financial decisions for themselves. Under these circumstances it is often necessary to apply to the Court of Protection for a Deputyship Order to allow monies to be given to family members to avoid inheritance tax. The Court of Protection can also deal with statutory Wills i.e. they make a Will for people who are not capable of doing it themselves.

Trust our specialist solicitors...

Our experienced solicitors have been through this process very many times with many families. As with our Power of Attorney work we always offer a fixed fee for Deputyship and Court of Protection applications. Our wealth of knowledge and experience means we can guide you through a complex, and at times frustrating process.
