Deputyship Solicitors in Leeds

Your need...

If you have a friend or relative who is already too ill (mentally incapable) 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...

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.

Trust us...

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 applications. Our wealth of knowledge and experience means we can guide you through a complex, and at times frustrating process.
