Court of Protection
If someone loses mental capacity without a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in place, a friend or family member can apply to the Court of Protection to make decisions on their behalf. A professional can also be appointed instead of a friend / relative.
The application can be very time-consuming; there can also be a daunting amount of paperwork. However, our team is on hand to guide you through the whole process and assist with any ongoing requirements.
For more advice or information please contact our team.
