Should you find yourself in a situation where you lose capacity to make your own decisions, then it may become necessary to apply to the Court of Protection for the appointment of a Deputy. This will not be a necessity if you have already made a Lasting or Enduring Power of Attorney.
A Financial Deputy’s role is to be responsible for the management of a person’s financial affairs in the event that they become incapable. Incapacity could be the result of clinical negligence, a brain injury or dementia.
There are two types of Deputy – property and financial affairs Deputy (dealing with financial matters) or personal welfare Deputy (dealing with social and welfare matters). The Court of Protection is a specialist Court responsible for appointing and overseeing the work of a Deputy.
