Protection of vulnerable and elderly clients

Security and peace of mind

We are regularly advising on and preparing Lasting Powers of Attorney both Property and Financial and Health and Welfare and give guidance on how Powers of Attorney should be used and when they should be registered with the Court.

One can only make a Power of Attorney if one has sufficient mental capacity to do so.

Where mental capacity has been lost before a Power of Attorney has been made what is required is an application to the Court of Protection for what is called a Deputy to be appointed to manage the person’s affairs. We have considerable experience in such applications.
