When Is A Deputy Appointed?

When a client is mentally incapable of managing their financial affairs and therefore incapable of appointing another person to act on their behalf, an application can be made to the Court of Protection to appoint a Deputy. A Deputyship order will only occur if the individual does not have a power of attorney provision in place. When a deputyship application is submitted the applicant has strict duties to inform any interested arties that an application to the Court of Protection is being put forward.
