The Court of Protection’s role is to look after people that do not have mental capacity to make decisions for themselves.
If a person does not have mental capacity, they are unable to make a Lasting Power of Attorney. In that scenario, an application will need to be made to the Court of Protection for a deputyship order.
In some situations, attorneys of a Lasting Power of Attorney will need to make an application to the Court before they can make certain decisions, for example if they want to change a Will.
We have extensive experience of dealing with applications to the Court of Protection.
