Lay Deputy Support Services
We offer a complete support service for family members and friends taking on the role of deputy.
Application for appointment – application to appoint a deputy for property and affairs to the court of protection to obtain a court order which will give you or a professional deputy the authority to manage your relative’s affairs.
Annual reporting form preparation – we offer a submission service for the annual reporting accounts required by the OPG and can assist clients and ensure they conform with the OPG Guidelines.
Further court application support for authority outside the court order – we are able to assist in further applications to the court to extend the authority given in the order where there are additional requirements. For example, a trustee application may be required to sell the property of someone who has lost capacity, making a gift of the funds of the protected party would also require the approval of the court of protection to confirm it is in their best interests and an agreement to pay a family member for any care they may provide would also need court approval.
Our expert team are happy to discuss the whole process with you to ensure you are aware and able to take on all the responsibilities effectively.
