Do you need a Deputyship Order?
When a family member or friend loses mental capacity it can be a stressful and difficult time.
In order to take control of your loved one or family member’s affairs an application is made to the Court of Protection to appoint a Deputy (i.e. a family member, friend, or professional) to manage the day to day affairs of that person who has lost capacity.
It is important to remember that someone may be able to make decisions about everyday issues like what to eat, what to wear, what to watch but can lack capacity to make decisions about more complex issues, like managing their own finances.
We have helped hundreds of families and can guide you through this complex process and allow you.
We offer a free initial consultation and Fixed Fee Deputyship Application service from £475 + VAT + Disbursements (Court fee of £385). Our costs are billed at the end of the application process and the Court allows payment to be made out of the funds of the incapacitated person as the Order is made on their behalf. Court approved rates for Deputyship applications start at £950 + VAT so we offer the lowest costs in the country. We also work nationally.
